Pengertian Question Tags
 Swan (2005: 465) menyebutkan,
“Question tags are the small questions
that often come at the ends of sentences in speech, and sometimes ininformal writing
.” Menurut Swan, Question tag itu adalah pertanyaan
-pertanyaan pendek yang sering muncul di akhir kalimat pada saat berbicara,dan kadang muncul pada tulisan informal.Contoh :
 
The Film wasn’t very good, was it?
 
Kalimat negatif biasanya diringkas meski bentuk sempurnanya bisadigunakan dalam percakapan.Contoh :
 
Th
at’s the postman, isn’t it?
 
 
You take the sugar in tea, don’t you?
 
 
They promised to repay us within six months, did they not? (formal)
 
Dengan demikian, question tags dapat difungsikan untuk memeriksa apakahsesuatu itu benar atau tidak; bisa juga berfungsi menanyakan persetujuan.
 
Question tags (+)(-) atau (-)(+)
 
Maksudnya, pada kalimat positif, question tags harus negatif; sebaliknyapada kalimat negatif, question tags harus positif. Namun hal ini tidakberfungsi pada kalimat pertanyaan karena sangat tidak wajar.
 
Contoh :
 
 
You're the new secretary, aren't you?
 
 
You're not the new secretary, are you?
 
 
(bukan are you the new secretary, aren't you?)
