'Question-wording'? I think you mean 'Misleading questions'! Misleading questions are when the person presenting the questions asks in a way to influence the interviewee's response. To elicit a certain response so for example, the interviewer could ask the interviewee in a crime scene investigation , 'Did you see the man with the red cap on'? When in fact there was no man with a red cap but by asking this misleading question you are putting doubt in the person's mind and they may then think 'oh there was a guy with a red cap? Oh I remember' , you are putting memories in their mind that do not exist! So you are making them think about it.
