comment Ending a sentence with “does” after verb
Very interesting the possibility you describe with a plural. Yes, omitting does simplifies the sentence a lot. For some reason, I thought there was something wrong with the original sentence simply because of its use of have.

@RegDwigнt Can you elaborate why the alternative I proposed is ungrammatical? Are you suggesting that the original sentence is okay?

Sure. I was assuming that "this" is understood by context. However, does the question sound good to you?

comment Grammaticality of “Do you know why this works this way?”
Thank you. I know Google is not the most trustworthy source of grammaticality. I would argue that from the total number of sentences produced in the internet, it is more likely to find grammatical sentences than ungrammatical ones. Do you know an alternative source of information for this type of question?

comment Use of “Could you tell what kind of”
I'm thinking that maybe it is because a deputy coroner has is not a full sentence. Could you clarify this?

comment Use of “Could you tell what kind of”
Great. An additional question: Why What kind of qualifications is not considered an interrogative sentence on its own with the last part a deputy coroner has as a subordinate clause?
