    Which is better, will or would?

    Dear all,

    1. Tom said he will come to the party.
    2. Tom said he would come to the party.

    If the party is a future event, which do you normally say?

    Thank you!

    Re: Which is better, will or would?

    Both are commonly used.

    I prefer "would" because it's more grammatical.

    Note: As this is reported speech, "would" is not weaker than "will".
