This paper discusses some issues related to the most widely used utterance particle " 啊(a)" in Modern Chinese, focusing on its sentence-final uses in interrogative sentences. Drawing on the following four behavioral traits of this particle: 1. It frequently appears in wh-questions; 2. It has a preference for rhetorical questions; 3. It often serves the same function as Japanese “noda”; 4. It is rarely used in quiz shows, I argue that the use of this particle in interrogative sentences indicates that some information shared by the interlocutors is in focus.
