Wh-question is another term for content question. In a language with overt wh-movement, a question introduced by a wh-phrase: what have they bought? Otherwise, a question containing a wh-element. Distinguished from yes-no question.
Altrnative spellings are WH-question and wh-question (with only the first element italicized).
The term is basically only appropriate for English, but not for other languages that do not have question words beginning with wh-.
