im wondering. did the chinese people adopt the question mark. or did they develop that themselves? because it would be such a coincidence that western people and chinese people both made the ? themselves because it looks the same in both. japanese people dont use question marks, they just write a ka character at the end of the sentence. chinese people do have a ma character at the end of questions. so the question mark isn’t really needed. maybe they did just copied it. but then how come all questions always go up in pitch at the end of the sentence. that is weird. questions to ponder.
