Questions may have the assertive form with the interrogation expressed simply by the tone of the voice, or may be introduced by an interrogative pronoun, adjective, adverb, or particle.

a. A question gains in animation and has its emphatic part clearly marked if the interrogative word is placed late in the sentence. Thus, ἡδέα δὲ καλεῖς οὐ τὰ ἡδονῆς μετέχοντα; you call pleasant, do you not, that which participates in pleasure? P. Pr. 351d, τὸ πεινῆν ἔλεγες πότερον ἡδὺ ἢ ἀνια_ρὸν εἶναι; did you say that to be hungry was pleasant or painful? P. G. 496c.
