Croatian/Main Contents/Level 1/Lesson 3
Questions are formed by by using a question word such as "how," "what", and other question words, as in English. The question word is always positioned at the start of a sentence.
There's a stress on the words so you know how to pronounce them. It's never used in any writing.
|Why?||Zȁšto? (lit. For what?)|
|When?||Kȁd? or Kàda?|
|Since when?||òtkad? or "òtkada?|
|Where from?||òtkuda?, ȍdākle?|
|Which way?||Kȕd? or "kùda?|
"Yes" or "No" Questions
Questions expecting a "yes" or "no" answer are created in a slightly different way. Most frequently li is added after the verb. As in the case with the questions words, the sequence "verb + li" is at the beginning of the sentence.
|Is he sleeping?||Spáva li ôn?|
