ASKING A QUESTION

 

 
 
_THIS IS A TESTING BETA VERSION OF THE SITE_
 
 
3 WAYS TO ASK A QUESTION
 
 
CAREFUL: THESE WAYS CAN’T BE COMBINED
 

1. QUESTION PARTICLE

 

We place the question particle at the end of the sentence

Question particle is mostly  /ma/ 

 

EXAMPLES

{chfx:sentences:tags=grquestionsma;max=4;order=random}

 

2. VERB - NEGATION - VERB

 

For instance 是不是 /shì-bu-shi/ IS or ISN’T = IS IT?

When the verb is based of 2 syllables, like 可以 /kěyǐ/ TO BE POSSIBLE, the construction looks like this:

可以 /-bù-kěyǐ/ IS IT POSSIBLE?

 

EXAMPLES

{chfx:sentences:tags=grquestionsvnv;max=3;order=random}

3. USING A QUESTION WORD

 

For instance: 什么 /shénme/ WHAT 

/shéi/ WHO

EXAMPLES

{chfx:sentences:tags=grquestionsqw;max=3;order=random}
