  • I know Spanish uses the question mark (and an upside down one at the beginning of the question). I think all Europeans do. I don't know about native Answerbag speakers, though 😒

      Hahaha Good answer. Thanks
  • No, there are question marks in many European languages, like French, German, Spanish and Italian. However, spoken languages, English included, don't use question marks, except when you transcribe them - they generally use intonation. One explanation for people not using question marks is that they are a little more difficult to type, especially on a smartphone. It is the same reason why some people write only in lower case.
