Упражнения по теме «Построение вопросов в английском языке»

При построении вопроса правило очередности членов предложения перестаёт работать, так как порядок слов в вопросительном предложении меняется.



Построение вопросов разных типов в английском языке: практические задания


В английском языке существует пять типов вопросов:

  • общий;
  • специальный;
  • альтернативный;
  • разделительный.

А также можно поставить вопрос к подлежащему.

А как, в общем, строится вопросительное предложение? Нарушается ли при этом строгая очередность следования членов предложения?

Мы ведь знаем, что по правилам на первом месте в английском предложении стоит подлежащее, на втором – сказуемое, за ним идёт дополнение, а потом остальные члены предложения.

При построении вопроса это правило перестаёт работать, так как порядок слов в вопросительном предложении меняется.

А именно, в одних случаях вопрос начинается с вопросительного слова, в других –  с вспомогательного глагола (за исключением вопроса разделительного типа), затем сохраняется известный нам порядок следования:

  • подлежащее,
  • сказуемое,
  • дополнение и остальные члены предложения.


Тип вопроса Пример
Общий Are you a booklover? – Ты любитель книг?
Do you read books? – Ты читаешь книги?
Специальный Why are you a booklover? – Почему ты любитель книг?
When do you usually read books? – Когда ты обычно читаешь книги?
Альтернативный Are you a booklover or a nonreader? – Ты любитель книг или нет?
Do you read books or magazines? – Ты читаешь книги или журналы?
Разделительный You are a booklover, aren’t you? – Ты любитель книг, не так ли?
You don’t read books, do you? – Ты не читаешь книги, не так ли?
Вопрос к подлежащему Who is a booklover? – Кто любитель книг?
Who reads books? – Кто читает книги?


В начале практической работы выполняем несложные задания по теме, но по мере продвижения сложность упражнений будет возрастать.
