Intonational Construct 3 (IC-3)

There are 3 intonations with which Russian sentences can be constructed. In this lesson we introduce construct 3 which is commonly used to ask questions.

Intonational Construct 3 (IC-3)   is used in sentences starting with question words such as Who (Кто), Where (Где), When (Когда). This construct is pronounced with an increased tone in the middle of the sentence.

Э’то ма’ма?  Is this mama?

Э’то Анто’н?  Is this Anton?

Э’то вода’?  Is this water?

Э’то до’м?  Is this a house?
