Question Tags

Question tags are used in conversation to get a (positive) reaction from the person you are talking to. Thats not really difficult, is it? ;o)


  • positive main clause → negative question tag
  • negative main clause → positive question tag


You are Tom, arent you?
He isnt Joe, is he?

main clause with auxiliary verb → use auxiliary verb in question tag

Youve got a car, havent you?
