Transcript of Tag Question

Tag Question
what is it?
The tag questions are short phrases or questions (mini-questions) that are placed at the end of an affirmative or negative sentence and are generally intended to confirm or deny the contents of the phrase itself. Is equivalent to the right? Spanish or no? most used in Latin.
Present To-Be
Sentences affirmative
It is used in the same form of the verb in negative.
aren't you ? isn't he? isn't she? isn't it? aren't we? aren't you ? aren't they ?
Example:
*It's a beautiful day,
isn't it
?

Sentences Negative
*It isn't a beautiful day,
is it?


PAST to Be
Sentences affirmative
It is used in the same form of the verb in negative.
Wasn´t I? weren´t you? wasn´t he? wasn´t she? wasn´t it? weren´t we? weren´t you? weren´t they?

THREE BASIC RULES YOU NEED TO REMEMBER
One:
The tag questions always use auxiliary verbs.
Two:
With affirmative sentences we use a tag question in NEGATIVE.
Three:
In negative sentences we use a tag question in AFFIRMATIVE or POSITIVE.
To form the "Tag question"
use auxiliary verbs (
be,
have, do, will, would,
can, could, etc
.)
