We will look at the question “How.”

This question is made by adding the word “waq” to the beginning of the sentence and changing the pronoun to fit the circumstance.

example: ni yayna sle-a. I see the mountain. ni sle-a yayna gaw lolptga sle-a. I see the mountain with my eye.

waq i yayna sle-a? How do you see the mountain.

Translate these questions and respond to the question.

1. waq i goge domna? ___________________________? __________________________________________.

2. waq i yulalona gena? ________________________? __________________________________________.

3. waq i honks saywakta?  ___________________________?  ____________________________________.

4. waq i q-ai honks sle-a? ___________________________?  ____________________________________.

When you ask a question “how” you are asking in what way something is done. You can answer it with a suffix that says that you do it “with or by” something.  This suffix you add onto a noun is -tga.  wactga=by horse.
