"What" - what part of speech?
Anyone who has completed high school usually does not have difficulty identifying the main parts of speech in Russian. However, some issues may be confusing even those who studied without triples. For example, the word “what” - what part of speech? In one survey, half of the respondents who were asked about this, without hesitation, answered that it was a question, others did not have what to say, and only a few “honors pupils” gave the correct answer.
Meanwhile, “what?” Is an interrogative pronoun. It has all the properties inherent in this part of speech, and is used instead of a noun, adjective or adverb. Along with “what?”, This group includes the pronouns “who” and “what” that are not declining in cases, as well as such words as “whose”, “what” and “which”.
So everything is simple. Now you know exactly what to answer the question about to which part of the speech the word “what” should be referred.
