Lesson 7. Tag question (付加疑問文)

Today was fine day, wasn't you? You study English, don't you? ... Tag question is often used in English conversations. It is a small question and added at the end of phrase. I want to use the expression naturally.

Following sentences are examples quoted from Wikipedia,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tag_question

Open the window, will you?
She doesn't really want that, does she?
You'd better stop now, hadn't you?
So you thought it would be a good idea to reprogram the computer, did you?
It's quite an achievement, isn't it, to win a Nobel prize!
Oh I must, must I?
I just adore Beethoven, don't you?
I'm coming with you, all right?
You've been there, right?
Easier said than done, eh?
You went there, no?



今日はいい日だったよね?エイゴ、勉強してるよね?…「付加疑問文」は英語の会話でよく使われます(日本語でも、ですが)。これはちょっとした疑問文で、通常は文末に付け足されます。これを自然に使えるようになりたいなーと思っています。

Wikipediaから、いくつかの文例を引用させて頂きました。
