Message 1: Japanese "Ka" and "No"

Subject: Japanese "Ka" and "No"

Dear All,

I am looking for papers/information about the difference between 
Japanese "ka" and "no" (as used in questions as: "Nani o shite iru 
no?") I am trying to find the specific cases in which "ka" or "no" 
can be used, and would be greatful for any help. Especially I am 
trying to see if there is a link between echo-questions and the use 
of "no" and "normal"-questions and the use of "ka".

Yours sincerly
