Speech marks 4

Reporting what somebody has said, but not their exact words, is an example
of indirect speech. Try to think about why a journalist for example might
not quote a person's exact words. Writers can use this method to summarise
what a person has said or to give a sense of the person's words without
quoting them in their entirety.

Minister Davis said that she intends to commit funds to a range of visual
arts projects.

The spokesperson from the British branch of the Global Film Group
commented that only professionally accredited courses will develop a
student's potential.
