I've seen "NARQ" in the below topic. But I cannot understand the meaning.

https://english.stackexchange.com/questions/89740/how-do-you-disambiguate-phrases-like-killing-doctors-when-you-cant-use-an-art#=

I think it's NARQ.

Is it an abbreviated word?

    It stands for Not A Real Question. Common on ELU, obviously, but not well-known to the world at large. – FumbleFingers Nov 1 '12 at 0:18

    "NARQ" is a transcription of the cry of the well-known Regged wight, a unique type of owl that can often be found in these parts. The cry of "NARQ" is usually heard before some form of action by the aforementioned owl, such as a migration; or more frequently, the closure of a question. – user16269 Nov 1 '12 at 8:31
  • So that's what Regdwight's username means. – American Luke Nov 1 '12 at 20:07
