Subject: Questions in Taulipang

Hi all,

Currently I am working on different formats for questions and I found
a citation (E. Hermann ''Probleme der Frage'', 1942, p. 357) about
Taulipang stating that it has wh-questions without wh-pronouns of the
following form:

 au-i:dzi-ma 'you are' = what are you doing?

1. Is this a correct question-format in Taulipang?
2. Is it the common / default format for wh-questions?
3. In general, which forms of wh-questions exist in Taulipang?

Apart from that, do you know of any other language which allows
wh-questions with gaps instead of interrogative (or corresponding
indefinite) pronouns?

Thanx for your help. 
Regards, Petra Gretsch
