Word Order with Questions

In questions, the word order subject-verbs-object is the same as in affirmative sentences. The only thing that’s different is that you usually have to put the auxiliary verb (or the main verb “be”) before the subject. Interrogatives are put at the beginning of the sentences:

interrogative auxiliary verb subject other verb(s) indirect object direct object place time
What would you like to tell me
Did you have a party in your flat yesterday?
When were you here?

More Practice with Yes/No Questions








WH QUESTIONS use basically the same word order as yes/no questions with a WH word added at the front.

She went to the store.
Did she go to the store?  (put the auxiliary verb with the time/person in front of the subject)
Why did she go to the store?  (put a WH word in front of the auxiliary verb)

EXCEPTION:  you don’t use an auxiliary verb if you ask for the subject. In this case the interrogative simply takes the place of the subject.  The WH-word IS the subject.

interrogative verb(s) object
Who asked you?
