Types of Questions in Bulgarian – Видове въпроси

здрасти, Bulgarian Learners! 😃

➡ In today's lesson you will learn how to ask questions in the Bulgarian language.

Happy learning!

How many types of questions in Bulgarian?[edit | edit source]

In Bulgarian there are two main types of questions: Yes/No questions and questions with a question word.

How do we form yes/no questions in Bulgarian?[edit | edit source]

  • We form Yes/No questions using the particle ЛИ. In positive Yes/No questions with the verb “to be” in present simple tense we place ЛИ before the verb “to be”.
  • In other types of Yes/No questions we usually place ЛИ after the verb.

Can we skip the personal pronouns?[edit | edit source]

In most cases we can skip the personal pronouns without changing the word order.

How do we use question words?[edit | edit source]

  • When we use question words (кой, какъв, как, защо, etc.) we usually do not use ЛИ to form questions.
Bulgarian Translation
кой  who, which
какъв  what kind of; what
къде  where
кога  when
как  how
колко  how much; how many
защо  why
  • Some question words in Bulgarian have gender and number.
Bulgarian Translation
m.  кой who / which
f.  коя
n.  кое
pl.  кои
m.  какъв what kind of / what
f.  каква
n.  какво
pl.  какви
  • When we use question words to form questions we place the question words before the verb.

Question word + Verb ?

  • When question words are used with prepositions, the sentence starts with the preposition followed by the question word.

Intonation[edit | edit source]

We can also ask questions using narrative sentences with a rising intonation.
