... Who, what, when, where, why, and how.
What are they in Esperanto?

Kiu, kio, kiam, kie, kiel.

Provu la kurson "Bildoj kaj demandoj" (la unua sub la menuo "kursoj") okulumo.gif

Estas vere multaj demandoj en tiu kurso, kie vi trovos tiujn vortojn kaj eĉ multajn aliajn.

Which stands for: Try the course "Bildoj kaj demandoj" (the first one under the Courses menu).

There are a lot of questions in that course, where you'll find all these words and also a lot of other words as well.

I got this from a course that I'm taking:

ki- [what]
ti- [that]
i- [some]
ĉi- [every]
neni- [no]
---------------------------------
-o thing
-a kind of, sort of
-a kind of, sort of
-e place
-u one, or person
-om quantity (amount)
-am time
-al reason, for...reason
-el manner, in...way
-el manner, in...way
-es one's; person's

Like if you say "what" and it was an object, you would take "ki-" (what) and at "-o" signifying that it's a thing, "kio". Who, would be "what/person," or "Kiu". ridulo.gif Hope this helps.

yep. these words are all very useful, and a few don't really have english equivalents! Here's a table with all the combinations:
