El uso de las Tag questions en inglés

A tag question is a question added at the end of a sentence. A tag question following an affirmative statement generally has the form of a negative question, with the meaning: Isn’t that true? In some languages, such tag questions are invariable. However, in English, tag questions vary, depending on the verbs and subjects of the preceding statements.

In the following examples, the tag questions are underlined. Contractions are usually used in negative tag questions. For example:

Affirmative statement Affirmative statement with tag question
Are you not awake? Aren’t you awake?
I am awake. I am awake, am I not?
You are awake. You are awake, aren’t you?
She is awake. She is awake, isn’t she?
We are awake. We are awake, aren’t we?
They are awake. They are awake, aren’t they?

These examples illustrate how the subjects and verbs of the preceding statements are repeated in tag questions. For instance, in the first example, the subject I and the verb am are repeated in the tag question. In the second example, the subject you and the verb are are repeated in the tag question.

In spoken English, the expression aren’t I? is often used as a tag question. However, this is not considered to be grammatically correct in formal, written English.

Traducción:

Una ‘tag question’ es lo que se añade al final de una frase. Una ‘tag question’ a raíz de una declaración afirmativa en general tiene la forma de una pregunta negativa, con el significado: ¿No es eso cierto? En algunos idiomas, tales etiqueta preguntas son invariables. Sin embargo, en Inglés, ‘tag question’ varían, en función de los verbos y los temas de las anteriores declaraciones.

En los siguientes ejemplos, las ‘tag question’ están subrayadas. Las contracciones son generalmente utilizadas ‘tag question’ en negativo . Por ejemplo:

Declaración afirmativa declaración afirmativa con la etiqueta pregunta
¿No despierta? ¿No estás despierto?
Me despierto. Me despierto, estoy no?
Usted está despierto. Usted está despierto, ¿no?
Ella está despierto. Ella está despierta, no es ella?
Estamos despiertos. Estamos despiertos, no son nosotros?
Ellos están despiertos. Ellos están despiertos, no son ellos?

Estos ejemplos ilustran cómo los sujetos y los verbos de las anteriores declaraciones se repiten en la etiqueta preguntas. Por ejemplo, en el primer ejemplo, el tema y yo soy el verbo se repiten en la ‘tag question’. En el segundo ejemplo, el tema que usted y el verbo se repiten son la ‘tag question’.

En Inglés hablado, la expresión no se yo? se utiliza a menudo como una ‘tag question’. Sin embargo, esto no se considera gramaticalmente correcta en el Inglés formal, escrito.
