They aren't at home, I don't believe/I believe.
Here in this context do both negative and positive comment clauses expressive roughly the same thing, that is, 'I don't think they are at home'?
Thank you in advance.
.. It may sometimes look like a tag, if the speaker changes his or her mind, and starts with a definite 'They're not in' and then comtinues... '[that is] I don't believe they are'.
