Sorry I’m a beginner of English. May I ask what does “hasn’t it though” mean in a reply?

  • Please tell us the original preceding sentence. "His English has improved vastly." Response: Hasn't it though?

In my experience it is a sarcastic, annoying version of the much more acceptable "Oh, hasn't it?" and would be part of a conversation like

"Where's my green T-shirt?"

"It's in the washing machine and the programme hasn't finished yet"

"Hasn't it though!".

In the early 2000s it was teenager slang, if anyone is still using it it's probably time they grew up.

  • It is not necessarily sarcastic. It could be said admiringly too.

    @Lambie I did say 'in my experience'.

  • @BoldBen If it's just in your experience, then it's better suited to a comment than an answer. Answers should be definitive
