Is there a language with an interrogative verb?

I don't mean like a questioning particle, but an interrogative (like the English WH-words) that would stand for a verb. I also don't mean a verb with an underspecified meaning in questions, like English 'do'. Does anyone know of a language like that? Thanks!

If I have understood your question right,I guess Tamil language has lot of interrogative verbs.Eg."Won't you listen to what I say ?" in Tamil would be "Sonna kekka maate ?" The lost word 'maate' is an interrogative verb.'Pannitaya?"பண்ணிட்டயா ? means 'Have you done it ?' and is an interrogative verb.Hope this helps.
