    It is said that/it is thought that/it is verified/

    Hi,
    I want to learn the method of using of the above patterns "it is said that/it is thought that/it is known that/etc". It's okay none of you teaches me about them here. It would be enough if someone just provides me any website where I will be able to learn about them.

    Thanks,

    The language in these phrases is not mysterious. Try starting with a dictionary.

    Great! I really wanted to have some examples though I didn't mention here. Because I am used with these kinds of sentences but I wanted to be more aware. Now I understand. If something is well-known by people and is very common to people, we can express it as "it is known/said/etc"
    Thanks Raymott for the examples. I personally want more examples in terms of these kinds of sentences. Since I am used with them, now I just want to know, in how many ways they are (it is said/known/though/etc) used.

    Well, you'll have to do some reading or listening. They are common phrases.
