A more elaborate treatment of the relevant phenomenon is at stake, where a) phonological atomicity is not a sufficient condition for wh-head movement to apply, although the atomicity of the units accommodated in a head position reflects their semantic composition; b) the [wh]-feature for which a wh-expression is lexically specified is more felicitously treated as a denotational deficiency, crucially an underspecification; c) this renders a wh-expression referentially dependent on discourse.
