Isn't it equivalent to "Woher kommt sie"?
But which one is used more commonly in germany?
"woher" is more common in written German and the split version is more common in spoken German.
Wow :) first of all thank you. i was not expecting that :)
Thank you! Very useful to know while learning German :)
Yes. I'm not sure about written German, but at least in my experience, it's quite rare to actually hear someone say, "Woher kommt sie?"
Yes it is
I wrote "whence does she come" and got marked wrong. I guess doulingo doesn't like Elizabethan English. Grr.
Where does she go? Where does she come from, cotton eyed Jo?
Came to the comments for this. Was not disappointed!
Wo geht sie hin? Wo kommt sie her, Baumwolleaugen Johanna?
This made me laugh.
Figured out the sylable problem I think.
I've reported it but I just lost a heart for "Where is she from?" - a standard question in English.
Does this sentence mean that "where is she from?" (in the meaning that she is living in Longon but she comes from Berlin) or does the sentence mean that "she is (just now) coming from the market"?
Can be both.
I, as a native german, understood "Wo kommen Sie her?" at normal speed.
Why is "wo kommt sie aus" wrong?
Because aus is not an adverb but a preposition?
I wrote " where she comes from " and it was wrong, but I don't get why
That is a (partial) statement, rather than a question. Basically the grammar is not correct.
Earlier Duo said wherefrom is she coming. My answer where does she come from was not accepted.
