Dear teachers,
How do I have to change into indirect forms the following:

1) He said" Jack, come her to meet me at 6pm tomorrow night."

2) He said: " Jack, come here the morning after next"
Can I say like this? :
- He asked Jack to come there the morning after the following/next day's morning.

3) He said:" Jack came here the morning before last "
Can I saylike this ?:
He said that Jack had come the morning before the monring of the day before.

Thank you in advance

Hi,

How do I have to change into indirect forms the following:

1) He said" Jack, come here to meet me at 6pm tomorrow night."
Can I say:
- He asked Jack to come go there to meet him at 6 pm (on )the following night of the following day/the - - He asked Jack to come there to meet him at 6 pm the following day's night?

2) He said: " Jack, come here the morning after next"
Can I say like this? :
- He asked Jack togo come there the morning after the following/next day's morning. (just say) the morning after next.

3) He said:" Jack came here the morning before last the day before yesterday, in the morning."
Can I saylike this ?:
He said that Jack had come gone there the morning before the monring of the day before two mornings earlier.

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you Clive, but I wonder why we cannot say "the morning before last". I often hear people say " the night before last".Could you help me understand why?
Hi,
I wouldn't say you can't say it, but I don't hear people actually say it. I do hear it about 'night'.

But such a phrase is hard to put into reported speech.

Best wishes, Clive
