Friday word: Pochemuchka

At theidolhands's suggestion, here's a Russian word:

Pochemuchka (noun)--a person who asks a lot of questions, especially the "why" questions. "Pochemu" is Russian for "why", and "chka" is one of the noun-forming suffixes, denoting a person.

This word is usually applied to young children.
