    Lightbulb more than imaginative question tags [part 2]

    hi
    This is the thread number 2 in which we are supposed to discuss some problematic sentences that need suitable question tags.
    Let's start.

    1-I wish he were a king,..........?
    2- It ain't easy,.........? [Despite you not attesting "ain't" as a verb, It does exist, though!]
    3-There's some people there,.........? [non-standard]
    4-thou spokest too much,..............? [this one may seem hilarious but I just came up with it ]
    5-
    I won't marry, believe it or not,.........?

    All you have got to do is to quote each sentence of the five and give your complete opinion on it.
    Once we are done with them, I will post some more.
    Please, answer neutrally and not sarcastically.

    thanks in advance!

    Re: more than imaginative question tags [part 2]

    I already have 128 questions and it will be so difficult to post this number of questions separately.
    Can I even post two by two?

    Re: more than imaginative question tags [part 2]

    We would rather you didn't.

    What do you mean by "in which we are supposed to discuss"? Who requires you to do this? Where did you find the questions? Why haven't you told us what you think?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I'd prefer one initial question per thread.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: more than imaginative question tags [part 2]

    ... with a title specific to each, such as Question tag — I wish he were a king ...

    I'm closing this thread. Please start a new one as shown, and please include the information you were asked for in post #6.
