Thread: Tag question

  1. Orz

    Cool Tag question

    Could someone please kindly tell me if this is possible or correct?
    -Don't make noise, will you?
    Is it proper to add a tag question after imperative sentence?

    Re: Tag question

    Yes, it's correct to use a tag after a command, Orz.

    You won't make a noise, will you? = Don't make a noise, will you?

    You will take care, won't you? = Take care, won't you?

    It is often used conversationally e.g.

    Don't be long, will you?

    Be good, won't you?

    The use of 'will/won't' here expresses a desire on the part of the speaker for co-operation/willingness from the person addressed.

    Hope this helps!
