Las tag questions son preguntas usadas para confirmar algo cuya respuesta es una afirmaci贸n o negaci贸n (yes or no).

Las tag questions se forman a partir de a帽adir al final de una oraci贸n una etiqueta contradictoria del verbo auxiliar respectivo. Una etiqueta en negativo siempre debe estar en su forma corta (don鈥檛, doesn鈥檛, can鈥檛).

Estructura de las tag questions

Entonces, las tag questions se elaboran de la siguiente manera:

Si la oraci贸n es positiva, el tag question es negativo:

  • We have tomorrow classes, haven鈥檛 we? (Ma帽ana tenemos clases, no?)

Si la oraci贸n es negativa, el tag question es positivo:

  • I didn鈥檛 go to the party yesterday, do I? (No fu铆 ayer a la fiesta, verdad?)

Si no identificamos el verbo auxiliar, utilizamos el auxiliar del present simple (do, does).

  • Tag questions sound great, don鈥檛 they?

Excepci贸n para las tag questions

Existe una excepci贸n para la regla de las tag questions, no existe una contracci贸n negativa para el verbo am, por ende utiliza aren鈥檛 :
鉂 I am ready, am not I?
鉁 I am ready, aren鈥檛 I?

Ejemplos usando tag questions

  • We are learning about tag questions, aren鈥檛 we?

  • You have done your homework, haven鈥檛 you?

  • You will finish this course, won鈥檛 you?

  • He doesn鈥檛 like pineapple on pizza, does he?

  • We haven鈥檛 finished the project, have we?

  • We are not going on a vacation this year, are we?

  1. You鈥檒l help me to find out my phone, won鈥檛 you?
  2. He told you to hang out in the park in the afternoon, didn鈥檛 he?

Let鈥檚 practice, create sentences with each of the question tags we saw in this class:

He wants to eat now, doesn鈥檛 he?
She went for him, didn鈥檛 she?
They haven鈥檛 talked before, have they?
He couldn鈥檛 tell you, could he?
They won鈥檛 let this opportunity pass them by, will they?
You wouldn鈥檛 tell me that, would you?
They have worked hard, haven鈥檛 they?

SUMMARY:
QUESTIONS TAGS are used when we expect the listener or the other person to agree with us.

  • INTONATION: intonation changes the meaning of the sentence.
    Falling intonation is used when we are almost sure about the sentences or things that you said. Rising intonation it鈥檚 because you are not very sure about this.
    For example: you are not thinking of calling her, are you? (according to the intonation of 鈥渁re you?鈥, the meaning of the sentence changes).

  • CREATE QUESTIONS TAGS:
    When the statement is positive then we use negative question tags. When the sentence is negative then we use positive question tags.
    We use the auxiliary verbs of the sentence to create the question tags.
