Hi Teachers,

Do you agree with these explanations? If not, could you correct what it is wrong.




Grammar Notes



To report what someone said in the past we use the verb said or told.



To report affirmative sentences the conjunction that introduces the noun clause.



A noun clause is a group of words containing a subject and a verb.


Thanks in advance
Hi,

Grammar Notes



To report what someone said in the past we use the verb said or told. You can use lots of other verbs as well, eg asked, demanded, threatened, begged. A long list.



To report affirmative sentences the conjunction that introduces the noun clause. 'That' is often omitted.



A noun clause is a group of words containing at least a subject and a verb. But this defintiion fits all or many kinds of clauses.
