When we tell other people what someone else told us, it is called indirect speech or reported speech. We use reporting verbs to introduce the information that was spoken previously. Remember, the personal pronouns are me, you, him, her, it, us, and them. Other reporting verbs include ask, instruct, explain, mention, suggest, claim , and many more.
For example: He said that he was going to come. Reported speech is usually used to talk about the past, so we normally change the tense of the words spoken. We use reporting verbs like " say " , " tell ", " ask ", and we may use the word " that " to introduce the reported words. Reported speech doesn't use quotation marks to enclose what the person said.
