Typological differences in the formation of multiple qWhq-questions are well-known. One option is fronting all qWhq-phrases to the sentence periphery. The contributions to this volume all explore this option from a number of perspectives. Topics covered include finer investigations of the classic multiple qWhq-fronting languages (such as the South Slavic languages Bulgarian and Serbo-Croatian), extensions to less well studied languages (Basque, Malagasy, Persian, Yiddish), explorations for languages that don t obviously fall into this category (German, Hungarian), peripheral effects (optionality of fronting, Superiority vs. Anti-Superiority etc.), interface issues (with semantics, pragmatics, and phonology), and simply theoretical approaches aiming to capture the mechanisms involved in multiple qWhq-fronting strategies. The theoretical framework adopted throughout is the Minimalist Program, viewed from different angles. This volume brings together some of the leading experts on the syntax of qWhq-questions and offers up-to-date analyses of the topic. It will be indispensable for scholars investigating multiple qWhq-questions, and will find an appropriate audience in advanced students and faculty alike.After a functional description of Persian (wh-) questions, three Persian a#39;wh-riddles a#39; are introduced: (i) the language patterns with English rather than other wh-in situ languages in its ... Some tentative answers to these riddles appear next.
