"Which country?"

Which country?

Which country do you come from?

Which country you from?

Where are you from?

Where do you come from?

Where do you from?

Which country do you belong to?

Some people I met seem to be making a funny use of English language at times, with the double use of "also" for instance. The word "only", tend to be used a lot, at the end of a sentence. After hearing it a lot of times, I've gathered that it means "just" which should be placed before the word it applies to ; Or it does mean only but is placed at the end when it should precede the word it refers to ; Or sometimes "only" doesn't carry any meaning at all but it follows an advice. "I will return in two months only" (I will return in just two months), "it's five minutes only" (it's just five minutes away), "the person can be found at this time only" (Only at this time can you find the person), "you should go this way only" etc.
