DIRECT SPEECH

DIRECT SPEECH.

Direct speech is used to give a speaker’s exact words.

It is also referred to as direct quotation.

Direct speech is always enclosed within quotation marks.

A comma always separates the quoted words from the speaker’s name, whether the name comes before or after the quotation
