What is an English interrogative pronoun?

[vc_separator border_width=”2″][dt_teaser]The English interrogative pronoun introduces a question. This is distinguished according to what is within the question:

  • After a person / thing?
    • Definite / unlimited number?
  • According to which phrase? (Subject, object, …)

Note: What or Which?

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

What (what …?)

Here, what asks for a person or a thing with an unlimited number.

 

Example:

What kind of books do you read?

 

Which

On the other hand, which asks for a person or a thing with a definite number.

 

Example:

Which of the boys are your brother?

 

NOTE:

“Of” can only stand with Which, because it otherwise expresses a restriction with a noun / pronoun.

About me

[vc_separator border_width=”2″]

Hey, formerly I thought that learning languages was an innate one. Either you can speak English perfectly or not and no matter how much you learn – “I do not write a good grade in English anyway.” But I quickly learned that you do not know everything in your mother tongue.

 

After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.

That meant for me verbs: the form – examples – signal words & the usage

This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.

 

Since then I know that learning to talk is not innate. And through that realization, my vision has become to offer other students the opportunity to learn English, just like I did back then. Now I ask you to help me by sharing this article with your friends! Thanks a lot!
