7. Portuguese Question Words
Question or interrogative words for asking information questions in Portuguese:
|what||o que*||which||qual (quais)|
|who||quem||how much||quanto (-a) (-s)|
|how||como||how many||quanto (-a) (-s)|
* The word que always receives the circumflex when it is placed at the end of a sentence.
procurando o quê? You’re looking for what?
Ele acha isso por quê? (Why) does he think so?
Notice that qual changes to quais when the following word is plural, while quanto agrees in gender and number with the noun that follows. Change final -o to -a for feminine, and add -s for plural.
