Inverted sentence without question mark but are still considered questions

Asked 2 years ago

Hi Trish,

 I am wondering if you mean the inversion of subject and verb in direct speech like in :

"Je suis allée voir le médecin hier, "  dit-elle. = " I went to see the doctor yesterday," She said .
"Je n'en veux plus chez moi," dit la mère avec fureur. = " I don't want him/her/it in my house," said the mother in anger .

or 

Il a décidé de quitter le pays , parait-il. = He has decided to leave the country, it seems ( apparently).  

 

In these cases, no, they are not questions that would always have a question mark at the end.

Let me know if this is what you had in mind.

Hi Trish,

Not sure what you mean?

May I ask you to give a couple of examples, then it may be possible for a contributor to comment constructively?

Merci et bonne journée

Jim
