all of a sudden

What would we do if all of a sudden we had to communicate without asking questions?

Someone would have to invent the question and then give the shocking news to the world of the discovery of a new golden tool and how it works. If questions hadn’t come into existence, we might be going around giving each other commands like: Give me your opinion! And I mean it!

Were there questions before language? Perhaps using body language, a gesture, or grunts of a certain tone? I wonder about the moments when a human first asked a question as we do today and got an answer.

Do animals ask questions? Do insects? Earthlings like us couldn’t function properly without them. Are questions instinctual?

Does our type of civilization require questions? Asking for something in a courteous and polite way generally gets the information or object we want or need.

The questions of science aren’t that easy because the answers are usually unknown to everyone. Sometimes in science, it’s like asking for a sweetener, but no one knows for sure if a plant like sugarcane exists, and the search begins.

There are at least nineteen forms of the word question, five noun-definitions, two verb-definitions, and the word is used in the expression of at least nine different phrases.
