I found the following phrase in the wild and as an ESL speaker it piqued my interest:
So people who become Social Media influencers can get lucrative deals with companies why?
What's up with the adverb "why" put at the end? My hunch is that it is a colloquial contraction of a sentence and a sentence fragment:
*So people who become Social Media influencers can get lucrative deals with companies. Why?
- Is my hunch correct?
- Is there a name for this specific phenomenon in linguistics?
- Does this phrasing convey a specific connotation?
