"Do you usually write letters?"
Translation:Brukar du skriva brev?

Standard word order is Du skriver brev. If you add a modal verb, you put that as the main verb in the v2 slot: Du brukar skriva brev.
To make that into a question, you move the main verb to the beginning of the sentence, hence:
- Du skriver brev -> Skriver du brev?
- Du brukar skriva brev -> Brukar du skriva brev?
So vanligtvis is the adverb, vanligt is an adjective only for ett-words and brukas is like some kind of verb that means the same... like you said in the previous comment to zk1P4. So, if I get it properly, "Skriva du vanligt brev?" would mean something like "Do you write common letters?" Is that my mistake?
