How do you differentiate this question from the same exact sentence laid out as a statement?
To clarify, how do you differentiate "does she stop?" from "she stops"? Other than with the semicolon?
When it's written there is the question mark...yes looks jsut like the semicolon. When it's spoken it's the rising tone at the the end of the sentence.
OK, thanks for clarifying. I guess it takes training to differentiate this rising tone from the accentuation. Is there no other way of asking a question such that it is obvious it is a question? For instance, you could ask "she stopped?" in English too, and you would recognize this from the tone, but that is not the correct way of asking a question. Is there an alternative construction for questions in Greek too?
No, in Greek a statement and a question follow the same form. It's only the queston mark and voice that differentiate.
