In this paper I discuss two examples of wh-constructions which have a form similar to wh-questions, but do not have an interrogative function, namely wh-exclamatives like (1) and rhetorical questions like (2):
(1) How tall John is!
(2) I think we should sack John from our basketball team. After all, how tall is he? He is only 1m50 tall!
First, I discuss some points of comparison between wh-exclamatives and rhetorical questions that have to do with answers to underlying questions. This comparison, in particular, gives motivation an analysis of wh-exclamatives based on question semantics. Then I suggest a theory of wh-exclamatives and rhetorical questions which uses a question denotation for formulating felicity conditions.
