"Are they small animals?"
Translation:Jsou to malá zvířata?
Jsou to malá zvířata? - a normal neutral question
To jsou malá zvířata? - when you are suprised that someone claims they are small animals
Jsou to malá zvířata. - a neutral information that they are small animals
To jsou malá zvířata. - for example commenting on animals you just see in front of you
Just curious... would that change the meaning slightly, to something like, "Are they those small animals?" For example, as if we had been talking about some animals earlier, and now we actually see some small animals, and wonder if they might be the ones we were actually talking about?
