Transcript of "Question Tags 090822093526 Phpapp02"

  1. 1. QUESTION TAGS By: Tere and Rachel.
  2. 2. QUESTION TAGS * Question tags are short form at the end of statements. They are mainly used in speech when we want to confirm something or when we want to find out if something is true or not. - It isn’t a dog, is it? - They are cats, aren’t they? * Question tags are formed with the auxiliary or modal verb from the main sentence and the appropriate subject pronoun. - Karen is learning to drive, isn’t she? - Mark can’t ride a horse, can he?
  3. 3. <ul><li>* We use a negative question tag after a positive sentence. </li></ul><ul><li>- Kate will be here soon, won’t she? </li></ul><ul><li>- There was a lot of traffic, wasn’t there? </li></ul><ul><li>- Michael should pass the exam, shouldn’t he? </li></ul><ul><li>We use a positive question tag after a negative sentence. </li></ul><ul><li>- Kate won’t be late, will she? </li></ul><ul><li>- They don’t like us, do they? </li></ul><ul><li>- You haven’t got a car, have you? </li></ul>
  4. 4. * When the verb of the sentence is in the present or past simple , we form the question tag with do/does or did and the subject pronoun. - John doesn’t like golf, does he? - They left for Milan, didn’t they? * When the sentence contains a word with a negative meaning like never , hardly , seldom or rarely , the question tag is positive. - They hardly ever go to the theatre, do they? - He never plays tennis, does he?
  5. 5. <ul><li>Some verbs/expressions form question tags differently. </li></ul><ul><li>- I am -> aren’t I? I am thin, aren’t I? </li></ul><ul><li>- Imperative -> will/won’t you Stop talking, will/won’t you? </li></ul><ul><li>- Don’t -> will you? Don’t talk, will you? </li></ul><ul><li>- Let’s -> shall we? Let’s go out, shall we? </li></ul><ul><li>- I have (got) -> haven’t I (I possess) </li></ul><ul><li>She has got a bike, hasn’t she? </li></ul><ul><li>- I have -> don’t I (other meanings) </li></ul><ul><li>You have lunch at three o’clock, don’t you? </li></ul><ul><li>- There is/are -> isn’t/aren’t there </li></ul><ul><li>There is an envelope on the desk, isn’t there? </li></ul><ul><li>- This /That is-> isn’t it?
