In many germanic languages you change the word order if you want it to be a question.
Statement: You are tired.
Question: Are you tired?
If I put “Are” at the beginning it becomes a question.
Sei un po' stanco? in Italian means “Are you tired?” but it also sounds like a statement. In Italian you cannot simply change the word order in order to make it a question. How do Italians then ask questions? By adding a question mark in texts and changing the pitch in speech?
I could write: “You are tired?” But it sounds a bit weird in English unless you were surprised that the person was tired.
Is this how you ask questions in Italian?
