Chinese grammar: Tag questions with "bu"

As well as tag questions with ma, tag questions can also be formed using 不 (bù). This is done with a positive negative question.



This can then be attached to the end of a sentence to form a tag question. Tag questions seek confirmation or acceptance of what has been said. In English, "right?" and "OK?" are often used as tag questions.

我们 喝 茶, 好不好 ?
