typical example is "can i ask a question*?" which is.. which is used to form a negative sentence in the form of a question sentence, which can be very original. it seems to me that there is no pattern that automatically gives this meaning in western languages such as english. when i see this type of sentence in a translated text, i am surprised and startled. if we go the other way around, what would be the translation of the question sentence with ki (negative) into english? example sentence: "is that a question sentence?" (see ki/@ibisile) (see: rhetorical question/@ibisile) (see: türksün di mi/@ibisile)


although some sentences have a question element and a question mark at the end, they are not considered interrogative sentences. because such sentences were not created to satisfy curiosity and to get answers. the main purpose is not to ask questions, but to make the sentence positive or negative or to reflect an emotional state. sentences created for this purpose are called. eg: what do you understand by romance? (you wouldn't understand.) meaning: who doesn't love their negative mother? (everyone likes.) meaning: positive


for example, when the first person comes to the house, after the second person opens the door, "did you come?", "oh did you come?" or "was it you?" sentences in the form of so-called interrogative sentences are good examples.


these are sneaky things. it usually carries an implication or there is an orientation in such a way that something that is wanted to be approved is hidden under the guise of a question and the desired answer is received. it's not nice.


the case that the sentence said carries an interrogative sentence in terms of meaning and is not used without using the interrogative adjective can also be included in the so-called interrogative sentence.


such questions indicate a request or situation, and although it may seem like there is a question mark at the end, the answer is predetermined. often used as a request -can i have a glass of water?
