    Smile Reported speech

    Rewrite "Oh, my god" into reported speech.

    Can I say "He exclaimed for god's help." ???

    You can say "He said 'Oh, my God'." He didn't say anything about "help".

    Re: Reported speech

    It's not possible to report the words as such. You'll have to say something like: He let out an cry of fear/alarm/despair/etc.
