Presenting the words of a speaker is called narration. Narration may be of two types:
(i) Direct Speech
(ii) Indirect Speech
When the actual or exact words of a speaker is presented, it is called Direct Speech.
These two sentences refer to the two ways of reporting the words of a speaker. In sentence 1, the actual or exact words of the speaker is presented. This speech is called Direct Speech.
There are two parts of a sentence in direct speech.
The first part of the sentence in Direct Speech is called Reporting Verb.
For Example: In the sentence, Monu said, "Mamta lives in London", 'Monu said' is the reported verb.
The actual words of the speaker put within inverted commas are called Reported Speech.
For Example: "Mamta lives in London."
