People fall into three categories:
Those who make things happen.
Those who watch things happen.
And those who wonder what happened.

John M. Capozzi

wonder-womanTo wonder
To ask yourself.

The verb wonder can be used as a polite way of making requests or asking questions.

  • Excuse me, I wonder if you could give me some information.

To be very polite you often use the past progressive form.

  • I was just wondering if you could possibly do me a favour.

Cf. Como se escreve “mal-educado” em inglês?
