Narration: Direct and Indirect Speech in Hindi (English Grammar): Meaning, Definition, Types, Examples, Kinds, PDF, (Reporting, Reported, Verb of Reported), Change of Person, Change of Tense

Direct Speech: जब किसी वक्ता के कथन को उसी के शब्दों में इस किया जाता है, तब वह Direct Speech कहलाता है। Direct Speech में प्रायः किसी का कथन inverted commas के बीच में रहता है।

Indirect Speech: जब किसी वक्ता के कथन को उसी के शब्दों में न कहकर उसके आशय या सारांश को अपने शब्दों में व्यक्त किया जाता है, तब वह Indirect Speech कहलाता है। Indirect Speech को inverted commas के भीतर नहीं रखा जाता है।

Direct Speech

  • He said, “I am ill.
  • Ram said, I am ready.”
  • Mohan said, I saw her.”
  • He said to me. Do you know?

Indirect Speech

  • He said that he was ill.
  • Ram said that he was ready.
  • Mohan said that he had seen her.
  • He asked me if I knew.

कुछ पारिभाषिक शब्दों की व्याख्या Direct Speech को Indirect Speech में परिवर्तित किया जा सकता है।

इसके कुछ नियम हैं, जिन्हें समझने के पहले कुछ पारिभाषिक शब्दों को समझ लें।

1.Reporting verb: Inverted Commas के बाहर एक वाक्य रहता है, जिसके Verb को Reporting Verb कहते हैं। He said, “I am ready.” यहाँ ‘said’ Reporting Verb है।

 2.Reported Speech: Inverted commas के भीतर जो वाक्य रहता है, उसे Reported Speech कहते हैं। He said, I am ready.” यहाँ 1am ready Reported Speech है।

3.Verb of the Reported Speech: Inverted Commas के भीतर जो वाक्य रहता है, उसे Reported Speech कहते हैं और उसमें प्रयुक्त Verb को Verb of the Reported Speech कहते हैं। He said, “I am ready.” यहाँ ‘am Verb of the Reported Speech है।

Changing into Indirect Speech Direct Speech को Indirect Speech में बदलने के लिए कुछ General Rules हैं और कुछ Special Rules. General Rules उन नियमों को कहते हैं जो प्रत्येक प्रकार के वाक्य के साथ लागू होते हैं, वहीं Special Rules विभिन्न प्रकार के वाक्यों के लिए भिन्न-भिन्न होते हैं। General Rules को हम तीन भागों में इस प्रकार बाँट सकते हैं 

  1. Change of Person 2. Change of Tense 3. Change of other parts of Speech
  2. Change of Person Direct Speech Indirect Speech a am fag Reported Speech.
  3. First Person Reporting Verb – Subject – 31JATE 2. Second Person Et Reporting Verb > Object STATE 3. Third Person n No change. इसके लिए इस सूत्र को याद रखें

1 2 3

S ON 1 का अर्थ है First Person S का अर्थ है Subject 2 HT 3zef Second Person O FT Tf Object 3 का अर्थ है Third Person N का अर्थ है No change अर्थात् First Person Subject के अनुसार

Second Person Object के अनुसार Third Person No change

Note: 1. जब Reporting verb Present या Future Tense में रहता है, तब Indirect Speech में कहीं भी Tense में कोई परिवर्तन नहीं होता है। हम यहाँ Reporting Verb को Present/Future Tense में रखेंगे ताकि Tense परिवर्तन की समस्या उत्पन्न न हो और Change of Person की प्रक्रिया सही ढंग से स्पष्ट हो सके।

  1. जब Inverted Commas के भीतर Assertive Sentence रहता है, तब Indirect Speech में Inverted Commas के बदले that का प्रयोग होता है।
  2. जब Reporting Verb say/says/said रहे और उसके बाद object रहे तो आप यहाँ इसे Indirect Speech में tell/tells/told में बदल दें। अगर Object न रहे। तो Reporting Verb में परिवर्तन नहीं करें।
  3. Person बदलते समय Number तथा Case पर विशेष ध्यान दें, क्योंकि ये नहीं बदलते हैं। आपकी सुविधा के लिए Personal Pronouns के सभी forms को आगे तालिका में दिया जा रहा है, जिन्हें हमेशा ध्यान में रखें।
  4. इस Chapter में बहुत सारे solved examples दिए गए हैं। उन्हें आप अच्छी तरह पढ़े और समझें। जब आप उन्हें अच्छी तरह समझ जाएँगे, तब आपको exercises बनाने में कठिनाई नहीं होगी। इसलिए इस chapter में दिए गए सभी solved examples को कम-से-कम दो बार अवश्य पढ़े और लिखें। Object First Person He tells me that he is my friend.

  11. Exception: Universal Truth यदि Inverted Commas के भीतर कोई ऐसा कथन हो जिससे चिरंतन सत्य या सिद्धांत (Universal Truth) का बोध हो, तो ReportingVerb के Past Tense में रहने पर भी Reported Speech के Tense में कोई फ़रवर्तन नहीं होगा। जैसे –

  13. Change of Other Parts of Speech जब Reporting Verb Past Tense में रहता है, तब Reported Speech में जितने भी निकटता-सूचक शब्द रहते हैं, वे सब-के-सब Indirect Speech में दूरी-सूचक शब्दों में बदल जाते हैं। ऐसे आवश्यक परिवर्तन के लिए इस Chart को ध्यान में रखें –
  14. DirectIndirect thisthat thesethose herethere hence

    thence now

    then thus

    so today

    that day yesterday

    the day before/the previous day the day before yesterday two days before tomorrow

    the next day/the following day the day after tomorrow in two days’ time next week/year, etc

    the following week/year, etc last week/year, etc

    the previous week/year, etc a year ago

    a year before/the previous year

  15. Solved Examples:
    1. He said, “I am busy today.”

    He said that he was busy that day. 2. She said, “I shall do it tomorrow.”

    She said that she would do it the next day. 3. He said, “I don’t like this boy.”

    He said that he did not like that boy. 4. He said, “I am now speaking to this boy.”

    They said that they were starting in two days’ time. 6. He said, “She died a year ago.”

    He said that she had died a year before.

  16. Note: चूंकि घटना past time से संबंधित रहती है, इसलिए निकटता-सूचक शब्दों को दूरी-सूचक शब्दों में बदलना पड़ता है। यदि Reported Speech में प्रयुक्त वस्तु/ परिस्थिति वक्ता के साथ अभी भी मौजूद हो, तो उस हालत में निकटता-सूचक शब्दों को दूरी-सूचक शब्दों में नहीं बदला जाएगा। जैसे – 1. He said, “This is my table.”अगर टेबुल Reporter के सामने बोलने के समय भी मौजूद हो, तो Indirect Speech में this को that में नहीं बदला जाएगा। अर्थात्He said that this was his table. 2. This morning Ram said to me, “I shall give you moneytoday.” This morning Ram told me that he would give me money today. यहाँ this morning से यह स्पष्ट है कि दिन नहीं बदला है। अतः today का that day नहीं होगा।
  17. ध्यान देने योग्य कुछ आवश्यक बातें 1. कभी-कभी Reporting Verb के बाद Object नहीं रहता है और Reported Speech ag Second Person – pronoun/adjective को बदलने की आवश्यकता पड़ती है। वैसी परिस्थिति में आप अपने मन से कोई भी उपयुक्त object को चुन लें और उसे Reporting verb के बाद दे दें।
