The assumption put forth in Chapter 10, namely that constituent questions of languages in which there is affinity between interrogative and indefinite proforms do not contain any interrogative proforms but only indefinite proforms, helps to resolve certain other puzzles, such as (i) the derivation of specific and non-specific indefinites by adding disjunctive and conjunctive particles respectively to interrogatives; (ii) the occurrence of ‘indirect questions’ that do not involve any question (request for information) as such in most instances; and (iii) the affinity between interrogative and relative proforms, occurring in some languages.

Keywords:   interrogative proform, indefinite proform, specific indefinite, disjunctive, conjunctive, indirect question, relative proform
