School Wednesday

Welcome to my School Wednesday





Today I'd like to tell you about word order in the English language. The point is that English is an analytic language, it is a language that conveys grammatical relationships with using morphemes, i.e. separate words and word order. That's why it's very important use a right word order in your written and oral speech. Last Wednesday I told you about using the verb "to be" in the present tense and you have already know that you must use the basic order of words: subject+predicative+secondary parts of sentence(such as object, adverbial modifier) in positive sentences(statements).
But in questions (interrogative sentences) we must use the inverted order of words, it means: 
general question ( it's a kind of interrogative questions which has a short form of answer "yes" or "no"): auxiliary verb+subject+main verb+objective+adverbial modifier?
Special question( it's an interrogative question includes interrogative pronouns such as what, which, who and so on) such questions are often called "Wh questions":
 question word+auxiliary verb+subject+main verb+objective+adverbial modifier?
So speaking about the verb "to be" , you must build any question using these formulae:
1. auxiliary verb+subject+main verb+objective+adverbial modifier?
2.  question word+auxiliary verb+subject+main verb+objective+adverbial modifier?





Thanks for your attention.
Leave your comments, please.



With love,
