V that

Words in inverted commas

Sometimes words in the that-clause are put in inverted commas. The inverted commas indicate that the words inside them are the actual words used, or have had only an appropriate change of tense and reference. Compare V with quote (Section 13 below).
He now murmured that 'he needed a drink or he would die'.
On our most recent trip, our luncheon hostess commented on his attractiveness. I replied that we were 'only friends'.
