Abstract

From Socrates in ancient Greece to millions of game show viewers today, people have always been fascinated by and learned from the fine art of asking questions (Leeds,1993). Questioning finds employment in everyday conversations and affects communication ability in powerful ways. A question is the most effective way to get communication started and is the most useful communication strategy in conversations. In ordinary conversation, we may introduce a topic by asking, "What do you think about such and such?" (Payne, 1979).
