Special case 2: Asking for the subject
She brings her grandma a basket.
Before we start fighting against grammatical structures here, we should remember why questions were difficult in the first place.
Right, it was the problem of saving the S-P-O structure.
When we want to ask for the subject in
She S brings P her grandma O a basket O.
we just take the subject away and put the question word in as the new subject.
Who S brings P her grandma O a basket O?
This leaves S-P-O totally unspoiled. (Yes, I know, it should always be so simple...)
Here are some examples:
The house stands in the wood.
|What stands in the wood?
The girl collects flowers.
|Who collects flowers?
The hunter loves grandmother.
|Really? (No, sorry.) Who loves grandmother?
