What is a question?

What is a question? Here is my definition:


A question is a sentence that requests knowledge


I like to think of a question as similar to a pointer finger. Questions point somewhere and request an answer. They clarify our thoughts and orient our attention in a specific direction. Questions don't say anything about reality; they are merely an arrow pointing the way to knowledge.
