Translation:I ask him a question.
Could this also be "I ask him the same question"?
I ask him the same question = אני שואל אותו את אותה שאלה
If the sentence was "I ask her a question" would the translation be
אני שואל אותה שאלה?
And couldnt this also mean "I ask the same question?" I think this might be the question that the guy was asking.
I ask the same question is אני שואל את אותה שאלה because the direct object is definite.
Yes, שָׁאַל אוֹתָהּ שְׁאֵלָה could mean both to ask her a question and to ask the same question. Context rules!
אה... אני מבין! תודה רבה על תשובה!
