    Pronoun/reported speech
    Message from ronja posted on 31-10-2011 at 16:49:44 (D | E | F)

    I need your help please:

    “If the meeting is cancelled, I can leave earlier,” said the colleague.
    I don't know if the colleague is a man or woman.
    How can I change the following direct speech into a reported speech?
    The colleague said if the meeting was cancelled HE? or THE COLLEAGUE? could leave earlier.
    He or the colleague, which is correct?

    Thank you for your answers.

    I would put 'he/she'.
    Best Wishes
