Albanian Questions

Learning the Albanian Questions displayed below is vital to the language. Albanian questions may be either a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or else the request itself made by such an expression. Usually it starts with why, how, where, when.

Grammar Tips:

In Albanian there are 4 ways of asking a question to get a yes or no answer, and they are the following:

-Verb + pronoun: Unlike English, the auxiliaries do and does are not used. ¿A ka ajo kohë të lirë? (Does she have free time?)

-Pronoun verb: Only the intonation makes the sentence interrogative: ¿ A ka ajo kohë    të lirë? (Does she free time?)

-Verb +...+ pronoun. The pronoun goes last ¿Tiene tiempo libre ella? (Does she have free time?)

-Finally you can also make a question by adding a tag question to the end of a statement. Ajo nuk ka kohë të lirë ¿jo/nuk/ s'ka?

Note:

In Albanian there are 3 ways of negative form which are:

jo, nuk and s'ka.

"A" nuk ka ajo kohë të lirë? ¿vërtetë? or sometimes we erase "A", just we say: Nuk ka ajo kohë të lirë? (She has free time, doesn’t she)


Here are some examples:
