Rogo-rogare: To ask
Interrogative pronouns are used to ask questions. ???
|Quis ?||Who ?|
|Quid ?||What ?|
The plural of the interrogative pronoun is identical to the relative pronoun chart . It will have a masculine, a feminine and a neuter column.
The singular is almost the same as the relative pronouns except for the nominative singular and the fact that the masculine and feminine have been condensed to one gender.
This pronoun can ask both direct and indirect questions.
If who or which is modifying a noun it is an interrogative adjective, but follows the same rules as the pronouns.
The interrogative adjective is no more than reusing the relative pronoun (qui-quae-quod) followed by a noun with which it will agree in case, number and gender.
M & F singular can be blue or red. You will use the same word for both.
The plurals have a definite gender for Masculine-Feminine & Neuter.
|Quis vidit?||Who saw?|
|Quem vidit?||Whom did he see?|
|Quam vincerunt?||Whom (f) did they conquer?|
|Quem laudat?||Whom does he praise?|
|Quibus hostibus?||To which enemies?|
|Cum cuius filio?||With whose son?|
|Quis vidit regem?||Who saw the king?|
|Quibus amicis dabimus?||To which friends shall we give...?|
|Quid rides?||What are you laughing at?|
Assume that all except the one highlighted in red (Quam in Quam vincerunt) are masculine (blue).
