Sinonimi: interrogation point
A punctuation mark (?) placed at the end of a sentence to indicate a question; SYN. interrogation point.
Punctuation mark (?) used to indicate an inquiry, placed at the end of a direct question (“Who is coming?”) or an implied question (“This is my reward?”). A question mark is never needed at the end of an indirect question (“He asked us who was coming”), since this is a statement. To express doubt, a writer or editor may insert a question mark (“born in ? 1235”), often in brackets.
In grammar, a word or sentence expressed as a question. In English, a question normally has inverted word order (verb before subject: “Is that so?”) and may contain an interrogative pronoun (who, whom, which, what) or adverb (where, when, how, why). An interrogative sentence should end with a question mark.
Some sentences may sound interrogative but their meaning is exclamatory (“Was I upset!” “Do you mind!”). Some sentences are interrogative though they appear to be in the form of a statement rather than a question (“These gentlemen are the visitors?”).
