How do I know how to turn a statement into a question ? I read sometimes a different verb in the end than the one used in the statement before. I guess most of the time it has the following format:
<statement>, <question> ?
Examples (made up, not quoted):
- He is quite fast, isn't he ?
- He is doing it well, doesn't he ?
- You can get quite angry, don't you ? (or "can't you" ?)
- She isn't that beautiful, is she ?
Is this correct English ? How do I know which verb I need in the end ?
- I must go home, mustn't I ? (or "don't I" ?)
- He plays well, doesn't he ?
- She has a beautiful nose, hasn't she ?
- I can't do it, can I ?
So if I have an auxiliary verb in the statement, can I just "negate" it in the question ?
When I have no auxiliary verb do I always use "do" and negate it (according to the statement) ?
Auxiliary verbs (source):
- to have
- to do
- to be
(I'm lacking technical terms, sorry. I'm not native English.)
