    Dobrý den,

    vůbec si nemůžu vzpomnět, jak se řekne např. "Řekl, že to musel koupit."

    1) He said he had to have to buy it.

    NEBO

    2) He said he had had to buy it.

    Prosím poraďtě.

    Děkuju

    Hello Wings,

    (...)

    Direct speech: "I had to buy it."
    Indirect speech:
    Hm, I think "He said that he had had to buy it." would be the correct option here.

    He said he had to buy it.
    He said he had had to buy it.



    Both are grammatically correct but different in meaning.

    OK, I am going to write in English. For example. My brother is saying: "I had to buy a dog". So I can say about him "My brother said he had had to buy a dog"
    Is it correct?

    Thank you

    'Had had' is possible, but I try to avoid it wherever possible.

    "My brother said he had needed to buy a dog"
    "My brother said he had wanted to buy a dog"
    "My brother said he had felt obliged to buy a dog"
    "My brother said he had felt compelled to buy a dog"

    Thank you but my point is different. "My brother said he had had to buy a dog OR my brother said he had to have buy a dog"?
    This is what I mean....

    Thank you very much

    Grammatically speaking, "My brother said he had had to buy a dog" is the correct option. "My brother said he had to have buy a dog" is incorrect.
