GRAMMAR: Reported Statements

Do you remember Mr. Williams (Lesson 2 - L&S, Functions, Pronunciation - HEALTH AND MEDICINE) talking about his symptoms to Dr. Carter?


My wife says I also get headaches....

She says I’m getting these stomach pains...

Oh, and she says that I don’t sleep well ..


This is a strange way of describing your symptoms – if you remember that story you know why he does it. He keeps saying:

“My wife says ....”


Because he introduces the sentence in the present tense (She says), nothing happens to the tenses in the rest of the sentence.


You get headaches.

She says I get headaches.


You’re getting stomach pains.

She says I’m getting stomach pains.
