Translating questions

Postby LatinGirly » Thu Aug 14, 2008 8:42 pm

I'm trying to translate a why? question. I am using the word cur for why. But do I need to add the suffix -ne to the important verb also, or is that not nessecary? Thanks for the help as always!

No, you only use -ne to ask a simple yes/no question.

E.g.,

Cur dominus servos suos verberat?
Verberatne dominus servos suos?
