Forms of Interrogation

331. Questions in Latin are introduced by special interrogative words, and are not distinguished by the order of words, as in English. 1

Note— The form of Indirect Questions (in English introduced by whether, or by an interrogative pronoun or adverb) is in Latin the same as that of Direct; the difference being only in the verb, which in indirect questions is regularly in the Subjunctive (§ 574).
