Can anyone suggest a singular word or term, if one even exits, for a question that is non accusatory in nature. I know it’s a strange question so I’ll give very simple examples
Mom WHY DID YOU DO IT? If say for example the son broke a vase. This is a question but an accusation as well. It attributes blame.
As opposed to say
Mom Why did you do it? If she was asking her son why he worked out his maths question the way he did as opposed to a different way.
Sir, where were you on the night of so and so. This appears to be a neutral question or an inquiry that doesn’t attribute an accusatory nature!
Is there a term or a singular word that denotes the difference. Would it be an insinuationary question or just an insinuation or inference?? or an interrogation or a neutral question.
A question that doesn’t denote blame or accusation. An inquiry perhaps
