Undecided questions
Quoted command


Is there any way to preserve the honorific form if I want to change a sentence from direct to quoted form.

Example: 영화를 보세요.

I only know how to change it to 영화를 보라고 해요, but seems to be different in tone with 보세요

    It can be "영화를 보라고 하셨어요" or "영화를 보라고 하세요".:)
    Just make the last verb into honorifics.:)


    영화를 보다.
    영화를 보-시-다. (subject honorifics)

    할아버지께 영화를 보라고 해요.

    할아버지께 영화를 보시라고 해라.
    할아버지께 영화를 보-시-라고 해요.

    할아버지께서 영화를 보-신-다는구나
    할아버지께서 영화를 보-신-다네요.
