Abstract [en]

Earlier Egyptian wh-questions are argued to show a tripartite system of marking information structure vis-à-vis unmarked sentence construal. The use of the three strategies, termed ‘second tensing’, clefting, and wh-movement, is surveyed in the various verbal and non-verbal proposition types attested in this language
