When placed after the subject, the emphasis is on whether or not it is the subject or another subject. When placed after the verb, the emphasis is on whether the person is coming or doing something else. When placed after the object, emphasis is on whether the person is doing that action with the object. When at the beginning, no specific part of the question is emphasized.

Erokeyany reco ev OR Erokeyany reco ['eR\oxEjanai 'reko ev] Name-city what QUESTION Note: When interrogative nouns are used, the interrogative particle (ev) isn't neccessary. -- Jonathan Beagley Ilipatovri!
