Abstract: Attention is drawn to a form-function mismatch in wh-extraction from questions and relative clauses. Speakers make use of a number of ways to disguise the fact that the outer, embedding clause is usually functionally subordinate. This observation leads to the claim that a truly superordinate clause can become a parenthetical clause via a continuum of intermediate cases.
