Unit 19                Grammar

•   Questions / question tags / indirect questions

 ( Questions )


With be as a main verb Am/Was I on time? Are/Were you/we/they tired? Is/Was he/she/it cold?
With be as an auxiliary verb Am/Was I interrupting you? Are/Were you/we/they going on a picnic? Is/Was he/she/it working?
With have as an auxiliary verb Have/Had I/you/we/they got any money? Has/Had he/she/it finished?
With have as a main verb and with all other verbs Do/Did l/you/we/they have enough time? Does/Did he/she/it need anything?
With modals Should I wait? Could you help me? Will she be here soon? Might they be lost?
With who, whose, whom, what, which, where, when, why and how Who is taking the rubbish out? Whose book is this? To whom did you speak? What is the weather like? Which do you want? Where did you go on holiday? When is Terry starting work? Why did they leave? How do you spell 'environment'?


•        With the question words who and what, whether we use do or not depends on whether the question word refers to the subject or object of the verb.

Subject: Who saw you? (= Someone saw you. Who?)

Object: Who did you see? (= You saw someone. Who?)

•        Remember that after do or does, we use the bare infinitive.

 Did you go to the talk on the environment?

X    Did you went to the talk on the environment?

Does Tom want a glass of orange juice?

X    Docs Tom wants a glass of orange juice?

•        Remember that the verb mean forms questions just like other main verbs.

What does'environmental'mean?

X   What means 'environmental'?


 ( Question tags )


With be as a main verb You are Canadian, aren't you? She is beautiful, isn't she?
With auxiliary verbs and modals You haven't lost my CD, have you? We are having the lesson early tomorrow, aren't we? People should recycle things, shouldn't they? There will be lots of people there, won't there?
With have as a main verb Tom has a lovely voice, hasn't/doesn't he?
With other verbs You play the guitar, don't you? Frank lives in Germany now, doesn't he? Your friends really enjoyed themselves at the party, didn't they?
With Let's Let's get a DVD tonight, shall we?
With imperatives Pass me that book, will/would/could you? Don't forget tonight, will you?
Use Example
To ask someone to agree with us (falling intonation) It's really hot, isn't it?
To check whether something is true (rising intonation) You're Spanish, aren’t you?


• In sentences with I am, we use aren't I? as the question tag. In sentences with I am not, we use am I?

I'm the best student in the class, aren't I?

I'm not very tall, am I?

• With everyone, no one and someone, we use questions tags with a plural verb and they.

Everyone’s going to be there, aren't they?

No one wants to come, do they?

Someone's been in here, haven't they?

• Usually, when we have a positive verb in a sentence, we use a negative question tag. When we have a negative verb in a sentence, we use a positive question tag. In sentences with a negative word like no, little, never, nobody, no one, hardly, etc, we use a positive question tag.

You have got no manners, have you?

We never enjoy our holiday, do we?

• In sentences where the subject is there, we repeat there in the question tag.

There's no point calling Tim now, is there?

US vs UK Grammar

• In American English, a question tag with do can be used after a sentence with have got. This is not

usually done in British English.

US: They've got a lot of money, don't they?

UK: They've got a lot of money, haven't they?


 ( Indirect questions )

Form                               introductory phrase or question + clause with normal word order

Use                                  We use indirect questions when we want to ask questions politely.

Some introductory phrases and questions Example
Can/Could you tell me... ? Could you tell me what time it is?
Could you let me know... ? Could you let me know when it starts?
Do you know...? Do you know who that woman is?
I wonder if you could tell me... I wonder if you could tell me how much this costs.
I wonder if you know... I wonder if you know what the starting salary is.
I would like to know... I would like to know what your company is going to do about it.


• We do not use question word order in the second part of the sentence.

I would like to know when the next train to London leaves.

X    I would like to know when does the next train to London leave.

• Some indirect questions, which begin with a question word, need a question mark at the end.

✓ Could you tell me where the library is?

• If a direct question is a'yes/no'question, the equivalent indirect question uses if or whether.

I wonder if/whether you have read this book.
