© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-1 Punto di partenza In Lezione 1B, you learned how to form yes-or-no questions and questions with interrogative words. Here are the most commonly used interrogative words.
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-2 In questions beginning with an interrogative word, the subject is usually placed at the end. Cosa comprate voi? What are you buying? Dove abita lingegnere? Where does the engineer live?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-3 When an interrogative is used with a preposition, the preposition must precede the interrogative. Con chi parla Beppe? With whom is Beppe talking? Da dove viene Mario? Where does Mario come from?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-4 Although quando? and a che ora? both express when?, quando? asks for a general time reference, while a che ora? indicates a specific time of day. Quando studiano? When (generally) do they study? A che ora parte il treno? (At) what time does the train leave?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-5 The interrogatives che, quale, and quanto can also be used as interrogative adjectives that modify nouns. Che is invariable, but quale and quanto/a must agree with the nouns they modify. Quale donna è tua madre? Which woman is your mother? Quanti cugini avete? How many cousins do you have?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-6 When followed by the verb è, the interrogatives come, dove, and che cosa drop the final vowel and add an apostrophe. Comè il tuo fidanzato? What is your boyfriend like? Dovè la proprietaria? Where is the owner?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-7 Use che cosè to ask for an explanation or definition and qual è to request specific information. Note that quale and qual è are not interchangeable. Che cosè la paleontologia? What is paleontology? Qual è il suo indirizzo? What is his address?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-8 Demonstrative adjectives and pronouns Demonstratives indicate which of multiple items is being discussed. The adjectives questo ( this ) and quello ( that ) precede the nouns they modify. Questo has four regular endings, but the singular forms can be shortened to quest before a vowel. Note that quello follows the same pattern as bello.
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-9 A che ora parte questo treno? At what time does this train leave? Chi è quelluomo? Who is that man?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-10 Demonstrative pronouns refer to a person or thing that has already been mentioned or whose identity is clear. They replace the noun to which they refer and agree with it in gender and number. The demonstrative pronouns are questo/a ( this one ), questi/e ( these ), quello/a ( that one ), and quelli/e ( those ). Quale libro preferisci: questo o quello? Which book do you prefer: this one or that one? Leggi questi libri o quelli? Are you reading these books or those?
© and ® 2011 Vista Higher Learning, Inc.3B.2-11 The pronouns questo and quello can be used to refer to whole ideas or previously mentioned topics. Quello non è importante in questo momento. That isnt important right now. Questo è veramente interessante! This is really interesting!
