Grammar Notes

There are two ways to express possession in Ukrainian, represented by the examples below.

To express the English sentence [I have a question]:

  1. Я маю питання , which means literally [I have question].
  2. У мене є питання which means literally [In me is question].

Both of the above forms are acceptable.

To express the English question [Do you have a question?], we can use the following forms:

  1. ви маєте питання?, which means [You have question?].
  2. У вас є питання?, which means literally [In you is question?].
