Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry2 on Sunday, September 25, 2011 at 12:41pm.

Here is the second speech act. Thank you for your cooperation.


I also wanted to know if:
A) Would you prefer it if we met at six?
has the same meaning as
B) Would you prefer to meet at six?
Is "it" necessary in sentence number 1?
Indirect speech: She asked me if I would prefer to meet at six. (Is it the only possibility?)


Requesting
1)“Please tidy up you room.”
2)“Can/could you (please) tidy up your room before dinner?” , she asked
3)“Will/would you (please) tidy up your room before dinner?”
4)“I’d like you to tidy up your room before dinner.”
5)“Would you mind lending me your pen?”/”Do you mind (is it possible?) lending me...?”
Indirect speech

1-4) She kindly asked/requested/begged/ me to tidy up my room before dinner. (Can I use other reporting verbs?)
