I'm wondering if there's any reason why will would be uncorrect in the following phrase:
She said that he will probably be back soon.
reporting the statement:
He's likely to be back soon.
The book I'm reading suggests to use would, should or ought to.
Also for the following:
I refuse to accept that he is dishonest.
To report it I would have used either can't or couldn't (maybe she still can't believe it?)
She said that she can't/couldn't believe that he is dishonest.
I realize that the book may not write all the possible words, but am I wrong somehow?
