L'Interrogation Indirecte (Indirect Interrogation). Montreal Working Papers in Linguistics, Vol. 4.
Nieger, Monique; Paradis, Monique
This study is divided into two sections: the first examines Standard French indirect interrogation, noting several distinct verb classes which are discussed in terms of permutations of WH-words, reduction, multiple WH-words, cleavage, semantic compatibility, and the "que-" completive; the second part focuses on indirect interrogation and relatives without antecedents in Quebecois French. It is concluded that the system of indirect questioning in Quebecois French is unstable, as it demonstrates contradictory tendencies in its deviations from Standard French. (DB)
