Reported speech?

Slide 2 - Mind map

Direct speech: the literal, exact words someone says  “I am very angry with you” 
Indirected or reported speech: when you tell someone what somebody else said. He said he was very angry with me. 

What changes:  - Tense (backshifting)  - Pronouns ( I, we, you)  - Pronouns (here → there, this → that, these → those)  - Adverbials of time (yesterday → the day before, tomorrow→ the following/ next day)
