I am finding myself confused suddenly about what should happen with the QUE feature, generally, in the context of wh-questions.
I have a basic implementation in my version of the Grammar Matrix which is based on LING567, and that one uses non-empty QUE lists for lexical entries for wh-words and then the phrase structure rules, such as the Head Filler, may expect that the non-head daughter has a non-empty QUE, for example.
As for the verb, it currently has an empty QUE list.
In a recent meeting, I think it was mentioned that the verb is actually supposed to collect stuff on its QUE list? According to what though? I am not seeing anything like this in the ERG, although it is not easy to refer to the ERG because of its complexity and a large number of differences in features (differences with the Matrix).
In Ginzburg and Sag, they use STORE and WH features (and QUE actually isn’t mentioned; I think they don’t use it at all), and the verb’s STORE will indeed have multiple things on it.
Does it sound like I should be comparing STORE with QUE?.. As for WH, verbs do not collect things on their WH feature; that one in fact used more like QUE in the Matrix currently (lexical entry and then filler gap).
Update: Found a footnote confirming that WH is used similar to QUE as in P&S.
So, the question becomes: should I worry about verbs’ own QUE at all?
