Domande e Risposte Corte

It is very common in English to say a statement that then add a question on the end. The Italian equivalent is when you say 'vero' or 'no', for example: Fa caldo oggi no? O Fa caldo oggi vero?  = It's hot today, isn't it? In English we use the auxiliary verb from the first statement. If the statement is positive, the question is in the negative. If the statement is negative, the question is positive.
 
È molto comune in inglese fare un affermazione e poi aggiungere una domanda alla fine. L'equivalente Italiano è quando si dice 'vero' o 'no' Fa caldo oggi, no? O Fa caldo oggi, vero?  = It's hot today, isn't it? In inglese usiamo il verbo ausiliario della prima affermazione. Se la frase è positiva, la domanda è negativa, se la frase è negativa poi la domanda è positiva.
