We contrasted immediately preverbal wh-constituents with immediately postverbal ones. The preverbal position is the default focus position in Urdu; the appearance of wh-constituents in the immediately postverbal position within the verbal complex is not well understood. In order to test various possible factors governing the appearance of immediately postverbal wh-constituents, target sentences with wh-constituents in both pre- and postverbal positions were presented in different pragmatic contexts and given to native speakers to pronounce. The results show a clear difference in prosodic realization between the pre- and the postverbal position. The preverbal position is consistent with focus prosody, the postverbal wh-phrases appear to occur when the verb is in focus.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:title>Immediately Postverbal Questions in Urdu</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Jabeen, Farhat</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Bögel, Tina</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Jabeen, Farhat</dc:creator> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:issued>2015</dcterms:issued> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Bögel, Tina</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-03-11T15:29:58Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Butt, Miriam</dc:contributor> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
