Questions (la forme interrogative)
What are the ways to form a yes or no questions in French?

1. By placing "est-ce que (est-ce qu' before a vowel) at the beginning of the declarative sentence without changing its word order.
Est-ce que vous avez une voiture?

2. By using inversion
- simple inversion
Simple inversion is used when the subject is a personal pronoun or "ce". The pronoun is placed after the verb (or after the auxiliary if the verb is in compound tense) and linked to it by a hyphen.
Avez-vous un chien?
When the third person is singular (il, elle, on) verb form ends in a vowel, the letter "t" must be inserted with two hyphens bewteen the verb (or auxiliary if the verb is in compound tense) and the pronoun.
Va-t-elle à la plage?
When the third person singular form of the verb ends in "-d", it is pronounced [t] in the liason.
Prend-il? Vend-elle?
To form a negative question, one places "ne" before the inverted verb or auxiliary and "pas" after the subject pronoun. With pronominal verbs, "ne" precedes the reflexive pronoun.
N'êtes-vous pas fatigué?
When the subject is "je", inversion can only be made with very few irregular verbs.
Ai-je raison?
Since all regular verbs and most irregular verbs do not allow inversion with "je", "est-ce que" must be used instead.
Est-ce que je me trompe?
- complex inversion
When subject is a noun or a non-personal pronoun, simply inverting the subject and verb is not possible in French. Complex inversion is used. The noun (or non-personal pronoun) is placed at the beginning of the sentence, followed by the verb (or auxiliary if the verb is in a compound tense) and the corresponding subject pronoun (i.e, "il" for any masculine singular noun or pronoun, "elle" for every feminine singular noun or pronoun, etc.). There is a hyphen (or a hyphen + t + hyphen if the verb ends in a vowel) between the verb and the subject pronoun. Question using complex inversion are only used in formal spoken and written French.
Le professeur est-il malade?
Marie va-t-elle à l'école?

3. By intonation (i.e., raising one's voice at the end of the declarative sentence)
Vous allez bien?

4. By placing "n'est-ce pas" at the end of the declarative sentence without changing its word order.
Vous avez un frère, n'est-ce pas?

Questions (la forme interrogative)
How the question using interrogative adverbs is formed?

The interrogative adverbs are placed at the beginning of the question and are followed either by an inverted subject and verb or by "est-ce que" and regular word order.

1. When the subject of the sentence is a personal pronoun or "ce"
- one can either use simple inversion after these verbs
f.e. Quand rentrez-vous?
(The noun following "combien" is always preceded by "de". If no noun follows "combien" there is no "de".)
- one can insert "est-ce que" between the adverb and the pronoun to avoid inversion
f.e. Quand est-ce qu'il est parti?
(With common questions such as: "Comment allez-vous?" and "Comment vous appelez-vous?" "est-ce que" is not used.)
(When the subject pronoun is "je", "est-ce que" must be used after the interrogative adverbs except with a few irregular verbs.)
f.e. Quand est-ce que j'arrive?

2. When the subject of the sentence is a noun.
- simple inversion is made after all interrogative adverbs (except after "pourquoi") when the question is short (i.e., composed only of a noun subject, which is at the end of the sentence, and a verb in a simple tense).
f.e. Quand est votre anniversaire?
(In familiar French, "est-ce que" can be used, except in those questions which contain "quand + être, où + être, comment + être or aller, combien + avoir").
- est-ce que or complex inversion (noun+verb+corresponding pronoun) must be used after interrogative adverbs when the question is longer (i.e., has a direct object, an adverbial complement and/or a verb in a compound tense), when the subject is a non-personal pronoun, and after "pourquoi".
f.e. Quand votre ami va-t-il en Europe?
(In familiar French, the interrogative adverbs are often placed at the beginning and sometimes even at the end of the declarative statement, and rising intonation is used. Or the question is formed by "c'est + interrogative word (+noun)).
f.e. Comment tu t'appelles? or Tu t'appelles comment?

Questions (la forme interrogative)
What are the invariable interrogative pronouns?

The invariable interrogative pronouns exist in two forms, one long form and one short form.

For persons
Short form Long form
subject qui qui est-ce qui
direct object qui (+inversion) qui est-ce que
after preposition qui (+inversion) qui est-ce que

For things
Short form Long form
subject --- qu'est-ce que
direct object que (qu')(+inversion) qu'est- ce que
after a preposition. quoi (+inversion) quoi est-ce que

- "Que" is elided to " qu' " before a vowel or mute "h":
Qu'avez-vous fait?
- "Qui" is never elided: Qui a dit ça? Qui avez-vous vu?

61

Questions (la forme interrogative)
What is the short form of invariable interrogative pronouns and when is it used?

1. The short form for persons is always "qui". Inversion (simple with a personal pronoun, complex with a noun object) is required when "qui" is the object in the sentence.
- "Qui" is the subject
f.e. Qui est à l'appareil?
(When "qui" is the subject, it takes the third person singular verb form: Qui sait? BUT "être" can be plural after predicative "qui" (=qui+être+noun) when a plural noun follows: Qui sont ces gens?)
- "Qui" is a direct object
f.e. Qui cherchez-vous?
- "Qui" is the object of a preposition
f.e. À qui penses-tu?
(When "qui" is an object of a preposition and the question has a noun subject, simple inversion is possible under the same conditions as in questions using interrogative adverbs).
Avec qui sort Pierre? BUT Avec qui Pierre va-t-il à la soirée?

( In very informal French, "qui"(or: preposition + qui) is frequently placed at the beginning and sometimes even at the end of a declarative statement, and rising intonation is used.)
f.e. Qui c'est? (or: C'est qui?)
À qui tu penses? (or: Tu penses à qui)

2. The short forms for things are "que" (direct object pronoun) and "quoi" (after preposition). Ther is no short subject from for things. Inversion is required after both "que" and "quoi". "Que" is followed by simple inversion with a pronoun and with a noun subject. "Ouoi" is followed by simple inversion with a pronoun subject and by simple or complex inversion with a noun subject.
- "Que" is the direct object
f.e. Qu'attendez-vous?
- "Quoi" is the object of a preposition
f.e. De quoi as-tu besoin?

(In very informal French:
- preposition + quoi is frequently placed at the beginning and sometimes even at the end of a declarative statement, and rising intonation is used.
f.e. À quoi ça sert? or Ça sert à quoi?
À quoi il ressemble?
- "quoi" can be used instead of "que, qu'est-ce que" and even "quel(l)(e). It is then placed after the verb.
f.e. Tu fais quoi dans la vie? or Que fais-tu dans la vie?

What is the long form of invariable interrogative pronouns and when is it used?

One obtains the long form by adding "est-ce qui" to the short subject pronouns and "est-ce que" to the short object pronouns. There is never any inversion after the long forms. They are followed by regular word order. The long forms are used above all in the spoken language.

1. The long forms for persons are "qui est-ce qui" and "qui est-ce que".
Subject
Qui est-ce qui a dit cela?
Direct object
Qui est-ce que votre ami attend?
Object of a preposition
De qui est-ce que vous parlez?

How and when are the questions using the interrogative adjective "quel" used?

The interrogative adjective "quel" precedes the noun with which it agrees in gender and number. It four forms are:

Singular Plural
masculine quel quels
feminine quelle quelles

"Quel+noun" is generally followed by inversion and can be a subject, object, or an object of a preposition.
Subject
Quel film était le plus intéressant?
Object
Quel âge avez-vous?
Object of a preposition
De quelle couleur est ta voiture?

Except when "quel" is the subject of the sentence and in common expressions (where "quel" is a object), "est-ce que" may be used after (preposition+) quel+noun to avoid inversion.
f.e. Quelles robes est-ce qu'elle a achetées?
or:
Quelles robes a-t-elle achetées?

In familiar French, (preposition+) "quel" + noun is often placed at the beginning or at the end of a declarative statement.
f.e. Quel âge il a? or: (Il a quel âge?)

Although "quel(le)(s)" is generally immediately followed by a noun it modifies, it may be separated from this noun by a form of the verb "être".
f.e. Quel est votre passe-temps préféré?

"Quel, quelle, etc., can laso be used in exclamations meaning "what" or "what a".
f.e. Quel dommage!

Questions (la forme interrogative)
How and when are the questions using the varaible interrogative pronoun "lequel" used?

The variable interrogative pronoun "lequel" agrees in gender and number with a noun (person or thing) it replaces. Its four forms are:

Singular Plural
masculine lequel lesquels
feminine. laquelle lesquelles

"Lequel"is gerally followed by inversion and can be the subject, the direct object, or the object of a preposition in the sentence.
Subject
Laquelle des équipes a gagné?
Direct object
Lesquels des musées les étudiants visitent-ils?
Object of a preposition
Dans laquelle de ces maisons habitez-vous?

"Lequel" (which is placed at the beginning of the sentence) is never immediately followed by a noun.

"Est-ce que" can be used after "lequel, laquelle, etc." to avoid inversion, except if "lequel" is the subject in the sentence.
f.e. Lequel des films est-ce que vous allez voir? or:
Lequel des films allez-vous voir

If "lequel" is followed by the stressed personal pronouns (nous, vous, eux, elles), "d'entre" must be placed between " lequel" and the personal pronoun to express "of".
f.e. Lequel d'entre vous?

139

Questions (la forme interrogative)
What contractions occur if the forms of "lequel" are preceded by the preposition "à" or "de"?

à + lequel = auquel
à + lesquels = auxquels
à + lesquelles = auxquelles

de + lequel = duquel
de + lequels = desquels
de + lequelles = desquelles

No contractions occur between "à+laquelle" (=à laquelle) and "de+laquelle" (=de laquelle).
