Summary
'The Grammar of Q' puts forth a novel syntactic & semantic analysis of wh-questions, based on an in-depth study of the Tlingit language, an endangered & under-documented Native American tongue. A major conclusion is that the phenomenon classically dubbed 'pied-piping' does not actually exist
