    Default Re: Qustion tag+ some grammer tasks pls correct if wrong

    Joe,
    - None of your sentences start with a capital letter, and they all should.
    - The word "I" is also always capitalized.
    - When you have a tag question, you need a comma before the tag. Some of yours have period and some have nothing at all.
    - Don't leave a space when you form a contraction

    For those reasons alone, none are correct. However, focusing on the issue of the tag question alone, I offer the following:
    Quote Originally Posted by Joe29 View Post

    2 Eveyone is busy, aren't they? - There may be some who argue for "he" but only "they" sounds natural to me.

    3 He dare not meet me, dare he?

    4 Some of us are going out, aren't we?

    5 The examiniation has been postponed, hasn't it?

    6 He used to visit our office, didn't he?

    7 I am easy irritated, arenít I?

    8 Please post this letter, will you? -- This isn't a tag - it's a request.

    9 The journey was not comfortable, was it?

    10 Wait a minute, won't you? -- Also not a true tag.

    11 Lets have some tea, shall we?

    12 Do not go please do you? -- This doesn't make any sense. Perhaps "You won't go, will you?"

    13 I am pale, aren't I?

    14 Everybody claims to be right, don't they?

    15 Have a nice day have n't you? -- This doesn't make sense.

    Yes - AEIOU

    - to identify inal consonants in the following words:
    wish debt pitch
    please teach me how to
    All the letters that are not AEIOU
    - to identify diphthongs in the following words
    high cake pair
    Do you know what a dipthong is?
