  1. Narration is the use of a written or spoken commentary to carry a story to an audience.

    there are two types of narration.

    1.direct speech:what a man says skipped as it is within a quotation(” ”) marks. a sentence containing such a quote is called the direct speech or direct narration.

    2.indirect speech:-sometimes the exact speech of a speaker is not repeated but reported such as speech is called indirect speech or indirect narration.

    you can see that we use direct speech when we repeat someone’s words and indirect speech when we use our own words to report what someone says.

    there are three parts in a direct speech.

    1. the speaker. (mother )
    2. reporting verb. (saID )
    3. reported speech.( are you i ll?)

    some rules of narration:-
    1.the speaker and the reported but remains unchanged.
    2. where we can see said to it will be changed to told.
    3.the comma and the court after the reporting verb are replaced by that ,if ,weather etc
    4. if the reporting verb is in the present or future tense the reported verb is not changed.
    5. if the reporting verb is in past tense the tales of the reported verb is changed into the corresponding first form.
    6. if the reporting verb and reported but are both in the past tense reported verb jumps over a tense IE the simple past tense is changed into the past perfect and the past continuous into the past perfect continuous.
    number Sevan direct speech States all time truth the tense of the reported verb is not changed.

    change in persons:-

    1.the first person in the direct speech will not be changed into the person of the speaker.

    2. the second person of the direct speech will be changed into the person of the spoken to.
    3.third person of the direct speech will not be changed.
    4. when there is uncertainty as to person to home the pronoun in the indirect speech refers the name of the person should be given in the bracket.

    It is the first part of narration. I’ll give you the second part as soon as possible.
