This research investigated the effects of textual input enhancement on the performance of indirect wh-questions. A total of 140 first-year non-English major Taiwanese students at college level were divided into a control group and two enhancement groups. Participants in the enhancement groups received a sample text with all indirect wh-questions highlighted via bolding and underlining; participants in the control group received the same text with no typographical modification. Analysis of the data revealed that enhancement participants made fewer errors in terms of subject identification and indirect wh-question formation. The results indicated that textual enhancement may lead to better foreign language production of the target forms.
