Maybe. But you then think French would have inherited Spanish's ¿ and ¡ (which are at the beginning of their sentences to do exactly what you're describing).

comment When to use “en” vs “dans”?
@Brennan updated with examples. The reason why I ask is because in other languages (Spanish, for example), there are not multiple words to stand for "in" and I find this confusing.

@Brennan is there no generic rule? I can come up with examples all day but I need to be able to apply some sort of rule to them, no?
