Tag Question - Negative Statements with words such as hardly, seldom, nobody, etc.

 

Statements with words that carry negative meaning are considered negative statements and are followed by positive tags.  A tag question is a statement turned into a question, when asking for confirmation or disconfirmation of that statement.

 

For example:

Mary seldom arrives at work on time, does she? 

You can hardly wait, can you?

You are not going to Jane’s party, are you?

You will never get his blessing, will you?

Nothing can be changed, can it?

Nobody is perfect, are they?
