Questions with HÊ

Rule: A normal sentence has the order: subject, verb, object. To make it a question, the verb comes to the front. Said differently, the subject and verb swap places. If you have a question word, like WHY, WHEN, etc. you just add that before the verb.

Don't forget. If the sentence is future (sal) or past (het) , the helping verb comes to the front, since the verb is at the end of the sentence.

Present:    Jy het tyd.                   > Het jy tyd?                    Hoekom het jy tyd?

(with SAL)  Jonnie sal werk hê.    > Sal Jonnie werk hê?     Wanneer sal Jonnie werk hê?
(ith GAAN) Jonnie gaan werk hê. > Gaan Jonnie werk hê? Wanneer gaan Jonnie werk hê?

Past:         Sy het tyd gehad.        > Het sy tyd gehad?        Wanneer het sy tyd gehad?
