Note: Originally, what, when, where, which, who, why, etc.,
were interrogatives only, and it is often difficult to
determine whether they are used as interrogatives or
[1913 Webster] What in this sense, when it refers to
things, may be used either substantively or
adjectively; when it refers to persons, it is used only
adjectively with a noun expressed, who being the
pronoun used substantively.
[1913 Webster]

question following. "What welcome be thou." --Chaucer.

Note: What in this use has a or an between itself and its
noun if the qualitative or quantitative importance of
the object is emphasized.
[1913 Webster]
(c) Sometimes prefixed to adjectives in an adverbial
sense, as nearly equivalent to how; as, what happy
[1913 Webster]

What partial judges are our love and hate!
[1913 Webster]

3. As a relative pronoun:
[1913 Webster]

[1913 Webster]

by force, what by policy, he had taken from the
Christians above thirty small castles. --Knolles.
[1913 Webster]

Note: In such phrases as I tell you what, what anticipates
the following statement, being elliptical for what I
think, what it is, how it is, etc. "I tell thee what,
corporal Bardolph, I could tear her." --Shak. Here what
relates to the last clause, "I could tear her;" this is
what I tell you.
What not is often used at the close of an enumeration
of several particulars or articles, it being an
abbreviated clause, the verb of which, being either the

hunt, hawk, and what not." --Becon. "Some dead puppy,
or log, or what not." --C. Kingsley. "Battles,
tournaments, hunts, and what not." --De Quincey. Hence,
the words are often used in a general sense with the
force of a substantive, equivalent to anything you
please, a miscellany, a variety, etc. From this arises
the name whatnot, applied to an ['e]tag[`e]re, as being
a piece of furniture intended for receiving
miscellaneous articles of use or ornament.
[1913 Webster] But what is used for but that, usually
after a negative, and excludes everything contrary to

not so absolutely perfect in tent and cross stitch but
what my superintendence is advisable." --Sir W. Scott.
"Never fear but what our kite shall fly as high." --Ld.
[1913 Webster]

{What ho!} an exclamation of calling.

{What if}, what will it matter if; what will happen or be the
result if. "What if it be a poison?" --Shak.

{What of this?} {What of that?} {What of it?} etc., what
follows from this, that, it, etc., often with the
implication that it is of no consequence; so what? "All
this is so; but what of this, my lord?" --Shak. "The night
is spent, why, what of that?" --Shak.

{What though}, even granting that; allowing that; supposing
it true that. "What though the rose have prickles, yet't
is plucked." --Shak.

{What time}, or {What time as}, when. [Obs. or Archaic] "What
time I am afraid, I will trust in thee." --Ps. lvi. 3.
