Linguistics Collect examples from each language.
Chinese and English both have interrogative pronouns. For this exercise, we focus on ‘what’ and ‘??’ in English and Chinese respectively. What is interesting is that both forms can have uses that are different from the standard use of an interrogative pronoun.
1) Find out at least 3 different uses other than the standard interrogative use;
2) Collect examples from each language illustrating these different uses;
3) Examples must come from conversation, written texts, or dialogues from TV shows or films;
4) Provide sources of examples.
