WHAT DOES QUESTIONABLENESS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Question

A question is a linguistic expression used to make a request for information, or the request made using such an expression. The information requested may be provided in the form of an answer. Questions have developed a range of uses that go beyond the simple eliciting of information from another party. Rhetorical questions, for example, are used to make a point, and are not expected to be answered. Many languages have special grammatical forms for questions. However questions can also be asked without using these interrogative grammatical structures – for example one may use an imperative, as in "Tell me your name". For detailed information about the grammar of question formation, see Interrogative, and for English specifically, English grammar: Questions.
