Is it possible that there is more to the sentence? Check out these examples here: "he was reported died" poetry - Google Search.
Is the following sentence correct:
"He was reported DIED" ("Poetry from 1900 to 1975")
If i were writing i would write one of the following:
A) "He was reported DEAD"
B) "It was reported that he DIED"
The quote from the poetry book sounds odd to me
Does anyone agree?
I wonder, though, if there is more to that sentence. Consider,
Ex: 29 People reported died in April accidents.
