Most Icelandic question words start with hv:
Where = hvar
Where from = hvaðan
When = hvenær
What = hvað
Why = hvers vegna
How = hvernig
Who = hver
However, hver can be declined as follows:
To construct questions, simply invert the verb. For example:
Ég er = I am
Er ég? = am I?
When this happens with Þú, it becomes attached to the verb. The þ is either lost or changes:
Þú ert = You are
Ertu? = Are you
Hvað segjrðu? = What do you say?
