But Why??: Use and Distribution of Wh-Words

We present a three-pronged approach to the topic of wh-words: (1) What percentage of a child’s speech is dedicated to wh-words, (2) How the mother’s usage input affects the child’s output, and (3) How each wh-word develops over time—specifically, acquisition order, the wh-word “which,” and the dominance of wh-words.
