Catalan Questions

Learning the Catalan Questions displayed below is vital to the language. Catalan 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 Catalan there are 3 main ways of asking a question to get a yes or no answer, and they are the following:

-Pronoun + verb: Only the ascending intonation and the question mark at the end make the sentence interrogative: Ella té temps lliure? (Does she have free time?)

-Verb +...+ pronoun. The pronoun goes last, normally alter a comma. E.g.: Té temps lliure, ella? (Does she have free time?)

-Finally you can also make a question by adding a question tag to the end of a statement. Ella té temps lliure, no?

Ella té temps lliure, oi(She has free time, doesn’t she?)
