From Hull AWE
Jump to: navigation, search

Q-word is another name for what AWE usually terms a wh-word. We owe the term 'wh-word' to Quirk, 1985: 'Q-word' was used in the earlier grammar writen by this team, Quirk 1973 for essentially the same phenomenon. In the earlier book, in addition it lends its name to Q-element.
