They both work, but "Does it hurt" might be more appropriate.

"Is it hurt?" means "is it injured?"

Did it hurt when you fell?

Does it hurt now?

I searched this site and found this thread.

Since my question has something to do with this topic, I'd like to put my question here.

Avangi Did it hurt when you fell?
Does it mean that you just want to know whether he/she felt sore, without referring to a specific location?

Can I replace it with you: "Did you hurt when you fell"?

If I want to know a specific part, should I ask: "Did your forehead/right arm/thumb hurt when you fell" ?

Thank you in advance.

stephenlearnerDoes it mean ...?
it is "dummy it", the same as in "It's raining". There is no referent to any person or any body part.

It hurts when I walk. (Walking causes me pain.)

It hurts when I turn my head this way. (Turning my head like this causes me pain.)

Though it may refer to a body part if there is enough in the context to justify it:

- When does your stomach hurt most?

- It hurts right after I eat.

For a person:

Were you hurt when you fell?

- There was a car accident. - Oh, no! Was anyone hurt?

For a body part:

Did you hurt your head when you fell?

Did you hurt you arm when you fell?

And so on.

CalifJim For a person: Were you hurt when you fell?- There was a car accident. - Oh, no! Was anyone hurt?
I assume that these sentences refer to the physical injury or damage, like a cut, fracture, and bleeding.

CalifJim For a body part: Did you hurt your head when you fell? Did you hurt you arm when you fell? And so on. CJ
Do these sentences mean the physical injury or just the feeling of physical pain? Or both?

Thank you.

All those examples are about physical injuries, yes.

CJ
Thanks.

If I just want to express the feeling of physical pain, can I say:

Did your forehead hurt when you bumped it into the desk?

Did your right hand hurt when you swung it against the handrail?

Did your elbow hurt when you banged it against the door?

Thank you very much.
