ne - 1

You write the interrogative sentences like usual. Before putting the question mark, you write "ne".


soru cümlesi + ne? The stress is at the word "ne".


1) It means that you are not aware of the situation.

2) It is also sometimes used when you pretend as if you don´t know the situation. That´s to say, you pretend as if you are not aware of the situation.

3) Sometimes, you use it when you want to make it verify.

baba (father)


baba+m m覺?-------------------->babam m覺? (is he my father?)

(Imagine that you´re alone. You are trying to verify it by asking yourself.)
