Why is it so cold today?

Silvish uses the same "pro/per quid" derivation for "why" as a lot of Romance languages (parcoû). The Silvish term is partly fossilized because the "quid" reflex has dropped out of use as a stand-alone word. Still, most speakers can parse parcoû after a fashion through exposure to French and/or Italian.

Effectively, "The winds, why today coldly do they blow?" Less formally, the verb -dona "blow" might be omitted and -vehad "be cold" raised to matrix position, giving:
