把 "If I were you, I would...." 改寫成 reported speech


把直接談話內容改寫成 reported speech / indirect speech 是中學(甚至小學)考試常常出現的問題之一。今天我們看看一個比較特別的例子:

"If I were you, I would buy a house," said Peter. 

你會如何把以上的內容改寫成 reported speech 呢?

我們可以利用 advise (建議)這個動詞: 

Peter advised me to buy a house. 

看看以下例子: 

"If I were you, I'd ask for a compensation," said Mary. 

我們可以把它改寫成:  

Mary advised me to ask for a compensation.

He said, "If I were you, I'd leave at once."  

可以改成: 

He advised me to leave at once.
