Query:   Obviously, interrogatives can occur as nouns (what), adjectives
(which), adverbs (how), and even perhaps numerals (ikutu/nan- in
Japanese). Does anyone out there know of a language with verbal
interrogatives (perhaps in a sentence like 'what are you doing?')? If
there are none, does anyone know of a reason why there shouldn't be?

Thanks in advance,
