Mandaly, where do you place the pronoun when you want to say, "What's hurting you?" Is it at the end of the sentence?

usually after the verb.

examples:
hurt - fè mal, blese

fè mal - means causing pain
blese - usually means wounded, hurt

what's hurting you? - Kisa kap fè ou mal?
What's hurting him? - Kisa kap fè li mal?
That truly hurt me - Sa vrèman fè mwen mal
Does this hurt you? - Eske sa fè ou mal?
Also,
my head hurts - tèt mwen ap fè m mal
my teeth hurt - dan m ap fè m mal
her feet hurt - pye li ap fè li mal
my knee hurt - jenou m ap fè m mal

hope that helps.

  1. Does that go for all sentences, that the pronoun is place after the verb?
