Indeed - I cannot imagine myself saying "is" in sentence 2. "Was" naturally rolls off my tongue after "said," despite the fact that presumably the person still believes the particular brand of juice is nice (American English "good"). I can't say whether sentence 2 is incorrect, but to me it is at least unnatural.emma42 said:Sorry, I have just noticed that I have changed one of your "is"s to a "was".
I was referring to Elle's sentence 2.emma42 said:Sentence 2 doesn't sound unnatural to me. I can easily imagine walking around a supermarket with a friend, looking at the different fruit juices and, unable to decide and remembering that she had been effusive about one particular brand the previous week, asking her, "What's the brand of juice you said was nice?"
