The Interrogative Pronouns are strengthened by the addition of Particles like tandem, nam, e.g. Poen. 619ecquidnam adferunt? et ille chlamydatus quisnam est qui sequitur procul?” (On quianam? ‘why?’ of Epic Poetry, see VIII. 2). Ecquid is sometimes a mere Particle, e.g. Mil. 1106ecquid fortis visast?” ‘did she seem good-looking?’ (cf. VIII. 7). On quid ‘why?,’ quidni ‘why not?’ see VIII. 2
