We encounter many events and behavior other than the issues that we are used to almost every day in the world. Due to the separation of human beings and other creatures in terms of the ability to think and express thoughts, human beings can both affect through words and can be affected. They express the issues included their suffering, happiness, longing, etc. in words sometimes by talking and sometimes asking questions. They cause many of the extraordinary events experienced or change most of the matters with their utterances. During this time, the questions people ask to the self and against are of great importance. The speaker reaching information through questions shows actual differences. In our study, based on this idea we will try to classify the question sentences aiming to study the human communication, in other words, the situation in linguistic communication, on the basis of Searle's illocution categories in the light of pragmatics that examines how the language is used in a specific context and the principles of the use of language. Prioritizing the issues as how the speakers use and understand the question sentences, interpretation of questions utterances, the relationship between the speaker and the listener with the question sentences and how they affect each other, we have classified the related sentences into five groups in terms of pragmatics. Thanks to the mentioned classification as “question sentences that express precision by directing, that reflective / expressing sense, that express liability and finally that assuring indicative / declaring we have tried to emphasize evaluating the structure independent from the context is inadequate and it is needed to study not only the grammatical correctness but also the behavior as a result of a discourse.
