Why does question mark redirect to ?? They are not the same thing. The former is a noun phrase, the latter is a punctuation mark. The thing and the name for the thing are not one and the same and do not have the same translations etc. — Hippietrail 11:44, 27 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Please do not re-nominate for verification without comprehensive reasons for doing so.
- (nonstandard) Marks a preceding passage as a question, without the starting ¿, as in English and other languages.
- Cómo estás? — How are you?
- Why does this need to be verified? I see this nonstandard grammatical error all the time when reading Spanish. PseudoSkull (talk) 00:45, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

- Yeah, this is widely used. Here are four citations: Y desde cuando ? COMO QUIERES QUE TE QUIERA? Empezando desde cuando, Boberto? Si, ella las lee.... pero desde cuando leer es entender?....
- I also found one citation where the symbol ? is used instead of ¿ at the beginning of a question: ?Desde cuando una huelga obrera es sabotaje? —Mr. Granger (talk • contribs) 11:24, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
- I agree with Pseudoskull. Having the information under the usage note is enough, in my opinion. --Derrib9 (talk) 18:44, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
