Is: You already wrote the letter? an acceptable translation?

i added it, but it is marginal because, as an "intonation" question (a statement save for the question mark/intonation), it tends to express a surprise not present in the czech sentence. (we would tend to express the surprise by reordering, e.g., Tys už ten dopis napsal?)

How many years, I wonder, before we understand all these little nuances!?! :-)
