How we change what others think, feel, believe and do
Tag questions are small questions added to the end of a statement, for example:
That is a dog, isn't it?
Note how the tag question turns the statement into a question.
Here are a range of tag questions:
..., won't you?
Note the structural elements:
Use tag questions to emphasize and encourage the other person to agree. They turn a bold assertion or command into a question that is difficult to disagree with.
Make an assertion and add a tag question:
They will finish, won't they?
Start with what you want the other person to do, and then end with a tag such as 'won't you' or 'can't you'.
You will come to the dance, won't you?
