Forum Rocket Portuguese Portuguese Grammar The "o" before "que"

The "o" before "que"

Dustin-H5

In lesson 1.3 the question "Com o que?" And "O que você quer?" Confuse me. What is the purpose of the "o" in both theses sentences?

Hi Dustin, Nice question :) The article "o" is optional, so you can say "Com quê?" or " Que você quer?" But, some Professors believe it when you add "o" more emphasis is given to the question. Até logo Tereza
