In this article we analyze some new Wh-question constructions that are found in the speech of navarro-labourdin young speakers. After reviewing the structure of the standard Wh-question formation strategy and that of the reinforced strategy which is specific to navarro-labourdin, we analyze the data of the new Wh-question strategy. We show that unlike the previous ones, this new strategy does not show any Wh-movement, and rather, it is better analyzed as a Wh-in situ construction. Furthermore, we suggest a hypothesis regarding the origin of this new construction as a reanalysis of the existing patterns which could be facilitated by a contact situation with a language which, besides the Wh-movement construction, also shows Wh-in situ, i.e. French.
