You Understand Tag Questions, Don’t You?

A tag question is basically a little question tacked on to the end of a statement in order to gather more information, clarify understanding, or illicit a response to the statement.  For instance, you can use the regular question format…”Isn’t that dog cute?”  Or you could make a statement and add-on a tag question to the end…”That dog sure is cute, isn’t it?”

With tag questions, you always use the opposite form of the tag statement.  If the statement is positive, you add a negative tag question…”The sky is blue, isn’t it?:”  If the statement is negative, you add a positive tag question…”She doesn’t like spinach, does she?”
