Are Both

"I wondered what are your plans?"


I wondered what your plans are."


There is a little difference in the the existence of quotation mark.


Yes, they do mean the same with the caveat that the first example

I wondered what are your plans?

Would normally require a comma

I wondered, what are your plans?

or a swap to

I wondered what were your plans (eg for the weekend)?

  • Hi @Rathony maybe a line call, it's certainly not indicative. As I understand it, the Subjunctive mood (and I only really got into it after I started to learn French) can be used in cases where something is anticipated but uncertain - relating to hypotheticals. Happy to be corrected though – PerryW Jun 9 '16 at 7:07
  • I think there's enough of a grey area there to make a good ELU conversation. Probably a bit OTT for here - I'll edit to avoid confusion – PerryW Jun 9 '16 at 7:17
