Краткое описание документа:

Тест на косвенную речь для 8 класса.

В повествовательных предложениях английского языка происходит ряд изменении при превращении прямой речи в косвенную:

    1. После слов, которые вводят фразу автора, запятая уже не ставится
    2. После вводных слов ставится союз that (что), иногда можно обойтись без него
    3. Если в вводных словах есть глагол to say (сказать), он заменяется на to tell (сказать), если после него следует дополнение, указывающее кому фраза адресуется
