In my French class, I heard my professor say something like “De question ?” to ask if we any question.

Did I hear this right? If so, what is the grammatical structure of “de”? I'd thought it should be “de la question” with the partitive article.

If not, what is a natural way to ask “Any question ?” in French?

That was actually :

Des questions ?

a shortened version of :

Est-ce qu'il y a des questions ?


Est-ce que vous avez des questions ?

Note that questions are always countable in French so there is no way to use a partitive here. De la question is impossible.

    Could you help me clarify what "disjunctive" mean, at least in this context? Thank you.
