    Re: reported speech

    You've only done 22 posts, so...but it's better in future if you have a go yourself, and then we can help if it doesn't look right.

    "He says if he hadn't seen it he wouldn't have believed it."
    "He said if he hadn't seen it he wouldn't have believed it."
    "He says He wishes he had never met her."
    "He said he wished he had never met her."
