Mowę zależną stosujemy, gdy chcemy zrelacjonować czyjąś wypowiedź. Wówczas nie stosujemy cudzysłowiu, a w relacjonowanym zdarzeniu często zmieniamy czas gramatyczny.
Jerry: „I’ve got a new car.”
Jerry said (that) he had a new car.
CIEKAWOSTKA: kiedy czasownik “have got” (brytyjska wersja “mieć”) zamieniamy z czasu Present Simple na Past Simple nie używamy słowa ”got” . Zostaje nam samo „had”.

PYTANIA W MOWIE ZALEŻNEJ:
Pytania, na które odpowiedź może być tylko “tak” lub “nie”.
„Have you seen Pablo at the concert, Jake?”, asked Carl.
Carl asked Jake if/whether he had seen Pablo at the concert.
UWAGA: w pytaniach w mowie zależnej należy zwrócić uwagę na szyk zdania. W części po „if” lub „whether” zawsze występuje szyk zdania oznajmującego.
Pytania, które zaczynają się od “what”, ”who”, ”which”, ”when”, ”where”, ”why” oraz ”how”.
W tych pytaniach nigdy nie używamy „if” ani „whether”. Aby przekształcić takie pytania na mowę zależną musimy użyć tego samego słówka pytającego (what, who, itd.) oraz zmienić odpowiednio czas lub czasownik modalny.
„Why did you go there,”asked Alan.
Alan asked me why I had gone there.
