For reasons of effectiveness it is better to start a text with a central question - CQ - than with a central theme, as is usually done in literature on applied linguistics. One can define a CQ as the most narrowly formulated question a text has to answer. In this article five types of CQ's and five types of corresponding texts are discussed. Starting from the author's point of view it is possible to relate CQ and textstructure. In writing a text, someone can benefit from this relationship. This will help him in the process of writing as well as in the judging of texts. Moreover, the relationship between CQ and text structure can play an important role in the development of so-called text scripts. The author also gives an overview of the kinds of mistakes that are caused by interpreting the relationship between CQ and textstructure incorrectly.
