Interrogative is a term used in grammar to refer to features that form questions.

Interrogative is a term used in grammar to refer to features that form questions. Thus, an interrogative sentence is a sentence whose grammatical form indicates that it is a question. Such sentences are sometimes said to exhibit an interrogative mood—thus treating interrogative as one of the grammatical moods, specifically a type of epistemic mood. This applies particularly to languages that use different inflected verb forms to make questions.
