4A.2 Interrogative words

IntégréTéléchargement
Point de départ
In Leçon 2A, you learned four ways to formulate yes or
no questions in French. However, many questions
seek information that can’t be provided by a simple yes
or no answer.

Use these words with est-ce que or inversion.

4A.2-2
Although quand? and à quelle heure? can be translated as
when?, in English, they are not interchangeable. Use
quand to talk about a day or date, and à quelle heure to
talk about a particular time of day.

4A.2-3
Another way to formulate questions with most interrogative
words is by placing them after a verb. This kind of
formulation is very informal but very common.
Note that quoi? (what?) must immediately follow a preposition
in order to be used with est-ce que or inversion. If no
preposition is necessary, place quoi after the verb.

4A.2-4
To answer a question formulated with pourquoi,
use parce que/qu’ (because).
It’s impolite to use Quoi? to indicate that you don’t
understand what’s being said. Use Comment? or
Pardon? instead.

4A.2-5
Note that when qui is used as a subject, the verb that
follows is always singular.
Quel(le)(s) agrees in gender and number with the noun
it modifies.

4A.2-6
Quel(le)(s) can be placed before a form of the verb être.
