I used to have a grammatical interrogative mood. I dropped it. Now questions are marked by clitics.
This one is outdated. Since then, I restored the interrogative mood and deleted the "-emdi" interrogative pronoun meaning "why". Now the equivalent construction is a precative.

:con: Yélian

Northern Standard:

Miyde sa pavilacei?
[m͜aiːd sa pavˈlɐc͜ei]
Why 2SG self-hit-2SG

Southern Standard:

Miyde sa'i lacei?
[m͜aiːdə saʔi ˈlaːcei]
Why 2SG.REFL hit-2SG

The difference between the first and the second case is, that Northern Yélian uses a general adjectival prefix for all persons, pavi (self), while the Southern Standard has kept the more archaic reflexive pronouns, like sa'i (yourself). Furthermore drops Southern Yélian the personal pronoun, what is unusual in the North.
Wipe the glass. This is the usual way to start, even in the days, day and night, only a happy one.

As wh-movement is optional in Areyatta, there are two different ways this sentence can be translated into it. Of course, one includes wh-movement, and the other one does not.
