    what the problem is or what is the problem

    Context: the speaker wants to address the definition of the problem, should he say

    "Now we are going to discuss what the problem is."

    or

    "Now we are going to discuss what is the problem" ?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: what the problem is or what is the problem

    Is it my imagination, or have you been away from the forums for a long time?

    ... what the problem is.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
