A tag question is a short question that is stuck at the end of a statement. They can be used to soften a statement with an invitation to agree. For example, "It's terrible, isn't it" may sound more polite, friendly and inclusive than "It's terrible!" It is also common for tag questions to be used to form a leading or loaded question. For example, "You did it, didn't you?"
