I'm learning Spanish again and wondered why there's the upside down question mark (¿) and my wife helped me understand:
In Spanish there's no difference between a question and a statement.
Tú hablas inglés.¿Tú hablas inglés?
The first sentence means "You speak English", the second is "Do you speak English?".
When writing, "¿" introduces the next part of the sentence as question.
I also learned that young people tent to omit the "¿", especially when texting.
I guess over time it will die out which is sad, because IMO "¿" and "¡" are quite unique language features.
