NOTE: 1. A question is formed by:
a. placing the subject pronoun after the verb and joining it to the verb with a hyphen, or
b. placing est-ce que (qu') before the statement.
2. With the pronoun "je," only the "est-ce que" form is used. (the sound of "joue-je" is UGLY/moche!)
3. With "il" and "elle" and "on," a "-t-" is placed between the verb and the pronoun in the inverted form.
