How to ask questions

This article is dedicated to asking questions in the present simple form ( used for routine, habits or general actions)

{Acest articol este dedicat întrebărilor la prezent simplu ( folosit pentru rutină, obiceiuri sau acțiuni generale)}

We have the following rule:

{Avem următoarea regulă:}

Do/Does + subject + verb in bare infinitive

Eg. Do you like eggs? – Îți plac ouăle?

Does he travel a lot? – Călătorește el mult?

Form:

Do I work?

Do you work?

Does he work?

Does she work?

Does it work?

Do we work?

Do you work?

Do they work?

‼️We see that in order to make a question we need an auxiliary verb, the verb do. This verb goes in front of the question and for third form singular (he, she,it) receives an s.

{Vedem că pentru a construi o întrebare avem nevoie de un verb auxiliar, verbul do ( a face – a nu se traduce în limba română, în acest caz doar ne ajută să formăm o întrebare). Acest verb merge în fața propoziției interogative și la persoana a treia singular primește un s.}

⛔️ we have one exception, the irregular verb to be. (Am I? Are you? Is he? Is she? Is it? Are we? Are you? Are they?) – here also the verb goes in front of the question.

{Avem o excepție, verbul neregulat to be – a fi. (Sunt eu? Esti tu? Este el? Este ea? Este obiectul? Suntem noi? Sunteti voi? Sunt ei?) – aici de asemenea verbul merge la începutul propoziției interogative.}
