Echo Questions in Turkish

Hasan Sezer, University of Texas at El Paso


The main purpose of this study is to see the extent to which Turkish Echo Questions (EQ) are on a par with English EQs. A detailed English EQs analysis of Sobin (2010) is presented in the study as a backdrop to the main discussion. What follows it is the parsing of the data in Turkish Echo Questions. Then it is shown that the data in both superficially distinct languages can be argued for a proposal that echo question formation in English and Turkish follows similar norms.^
