This article is an article describing on how to use もう. The term もう is used to express activities or events which has been done whenever it is followed by a verb in a past form. It can be translated as ‘already’ in the following context of question in Minna no Nihongo book chapter 7 practice B part seven. So, we have to create a question based on the example problem which is also given in the book. We will give a pattern and an example on the usage of もう in an interrogative sentence to ask whether an activity has been done or has not been done :

Pattern :

Kanji                      : 主語                    +は      +もう                     +動詞

Hiragana              : しゅご                  +は     +もう                     +どうし

Romaji                  : shugo                 +wa     +mou                  +doushi

Meaning              : subject               +wa     +already            +verb

Example :

Kanji :



。。。いいえ、まだ 食べません。



Hiragana :



。。。いいえ、まだ たべません。

。。。いいえ、まだ です。


Romaji :

Aka-chan wa mou tabemashitaka ?

… Hai, mou tabemashita.

… Iie, mada desu.


Meaning :
