The subordinating conjunction “at (that)” can be used to start a dependent clause that expresses indirect speech. Usually this conjunction comes in the middle of the sentence followed by the dependent clause, so there is normal subject-verb word order.
|“Jeg er syk.”
(I am sick.)
|Han sier at han er syk.
(He says that he is sick.)
|“Jeg føler meg dårlig.”
(I feel bad.)
|Han sier at han føler seg dårlig.
(He says that he feels bad.)
|“Jeg må gå til legen.”
(I have to go to the doctor.)
|Han sier at han må gå til legen.
(He says that he must go to the doctor.)
