Discussion:

Consider the sentence: "YOUR BOSS NAME?"
In English this might be translated as, "What is your boss's name?"

This sentence requires an answer other than “yes/no.” It requires a “name.” since it is not a “yes no” question it is therefore a wh question because it implies the “WH” as in “What” is your bosses name? Even though we don’t sign the “What” explicitly, it is there in our facial expression. The facial expression for a "Wh" question is to furrow your eyebrows a bit. (In thinking of a way to describe the facial grammar for "Wh questions" I would compare it to what a person looks like when he or she is trying to get a better look at something. Their head actually moves forward on the neck about an inch and they squint their eyes a bit.)

The sentence: "YOU LIKE COOK?"
Do you like to cook?
This sentence requires a "yes/no" answer. The concept of "do" is not "signed" but is expressed via facial expressions as raised eyebrows. The head tilts forward just a tad.
