Why not konuyu?
Could ne be first?
Definitely not here. Question words don't move around in Turkish like they do in English and European languages. You will find them in the same place where you would find the answer.
"Yeni konu ne?" -- "Yeni konu okuduğumuz kitap." for example :)
What would it mean if we wrote "ne yeni konu "? Thanks, Alex Bay =)
Questions do come first sometimes. The first lesson on questions they were almost always the first word in the sentence. Ypu seem inconsistent in your explanations
