Alexa. Alexa. There she is. Welcome guys. Ok, so today we're going to be looking at how to make questions. Particularly with wh- question words. And then we're going to ask them to Alexa, ok? Oh, hi Alexa. Hi. First of all let's look at the words order to make questions and then we're going to have some fun with her. Let's review our word order for questions. So we're looking specifically today at questions that begin with a wh- word. So, when, where, who, why, what etc. or how as well. So the word order would be the question word then the auxiliary. That could be be, do or have. Then you've got the subject and then the verb. And then sometimes we have other information afterwards but in this example we won't ok so my example is 'Where were you born?' So where is the question word. Were is the auxiliary, that's be in the past. You is the subject and born the verb, ok? So 'where were you born?' Now that's the general word order for a question, ok? Now the reason that we are using the wh- question word is because we want specific information. So where were you born? I was born in London. That's specific information. Now the questions we're going to be asking Alexa also require specific information. I'm not going to ask her 'Do you like chocolate?' Yes or no. That's not the kind of question I'm going to ask her and that's a different type of question. These ones are wh- question words questions and so we want specific information and so that's the word order. So question word, auxiliary, subject, verb and then the rest after if there is extra information. One thing we have to look out for is the difference between subject questions and object questions. This is all about what's the answer to the question. A subject question is where we want to find out about the subject. So for example 'Who sung the song Gangnam Style?' So who is the subject of the sentence. Gangnam Style is the object. So as you can see here we've got who, ok? Then we've got the verb so who sung and we don't have an auxiliary ok that's the key thing here. When you are using a subject question you don't need to use the auxiliary. So it's the question word and then the verb. Another example might be 'Which team won the 2014 world cup?' So there 'which team' is the subject and 'won' is the verb and 2014 world cup is the object. If we compare that to object questions. The answer to the question is the object. Now, it's the regular word order that I showed you earlier so for example 'Who is your favourite singer?' So who is the object of the sentence. You are the subject of the sentence. So who is your favourite singer? The answer would be 'My favourite singer is whoever Beyonce or whatever Ed Sheeran.' So you are the subject and Beyonce or Ed Sheeran is the object. So the word order is the same as a regular question I guess. Who is the question word, is is the auxiliary and then you have the rest afterwards. So that's going to be important when I'm asking Alexa questions be aware to see which ones are subject questions and which ones are object questions. And remember the slight difference in word order. Alright let's get to know Alexa a little better. Alexa, when were you born? I' was originally released on the sixth of November 2014'. Ok we're now going to do a very special quiz. I'm going to ask Alexa some questions and then we're going to pause before she gives us the answer and you guys have to guess what the answer is. Are you ready?
