A: The Council has given planning permission for another shopping centre in the city.

B: So I read in the paper.

Can I use "I read so in the paper" or "I read in the paper so" in the place of the marked phrase above ?

  • The second alternative should be I read in the paper it was so. – Jason Bassford Jun 28 '19 at 16:34
  • @JasonBassford Can I use "so I heard or I heard so" in the place of the marked phrase? – Talha Özden Jun 28 '19 at 16:52
  • Aside from read and heard having different literal meanings, I see no reason why you couldn't exchange them. – Jason Bassford Jun 28 '19 at 16:55
