It is said that … He is said to …. (be) supposed to …


Ø Study this example situation:

Henry is very old. Nobody knows exactly how old he is, but: It is said that he is 108 years old. or He is said to be 108 years old.

Both these sentences mean: 'People say that he is 108 years old.'

You can use these structures with a number of other verbs, especially: thought believed considered reported known expected alleged understood

Compare the two structures:

Cathy works very hard.

It is said that she works 16 hours a day. or She is said to work 16 hours a day.

The police are looking for a missing boy.

It is believed that the boy is wearing a white pullover and blue jeans. or The boy is believed to be wearing white pullover and blue jeans.

The strike started three weeks ago.

It is expected that it will end soon. or The strike is expected to end soon.

A friend of mine has been arrested.

It is alleged that he kicked a policeman. or He is alleged to have kicked a policeman.

Those two houses belong to the same family.

It is said that there is a secret tunnel between them. or There is said to be a secret tunnel between them.

These structures are often used in news reports. For example, in a report about an accident:

It is reported that two people were injured in the explosion. or Two people are reported to have been injured in the explosion.

Ø (Be) supposed to

Sometimes it is supposed to... = it is said to...:

Let’s go and see that film. It's supposed to be very good. (= it is said to be very good).

Why was he arrested?' 'He's supposed to have kicked a policeman.' (= he is said to have kicked a policeman)

But sometimes supposed to has a different meaning. 'Something is supposed to happen' = it is planned, arranged or expected. Often this is different from what really happens:

I’d better hurry. It's nearly 8 o'clock and I'm supposed to be meeting Ann at 8.15. (= I have arranged to meet Ann, I said I would meet her).

The train was supposed to arrive at 11.30 but it was an hour late. (= the train was expected to arrive at 11.30 according to the timetable)

You were supposed to clean the windows. Why didn't you do it?

You’re not supposed to do something = it is not allowed or advisable to do it

You’re not supposed to park your car here. It's private parking only.

Mr. Bond is much better after his illness but he's still not supposed to do any heavy work. (= his doctors have advised him not to...)
