Întrebările disjunctive

Întrebările disjunctive sunt cele care se adaugă la sfîrşitul propoziţiei şi se traduce în limba
romănă prin „,nu-i aşa?” sau „aşa-i?” Această întrebare este utilizată atunci cînd interlocutorul

acelaşi timp.

Intonaţia întrebărilor disjunctive este:

- descendentă, dacă vorbitorul nu aşteaptă un răspuns real, ci doar o confirmare formală a
enunţului său:
The weather is lovely today, isn’t it ?  Yes, it is. Ce vreme frumoasă e azi, nu-i aşa ? Aşa e.

- ascendentă dacă el solicită un răspuns, o confirmare sau negare reală a celor spunse:
It is cold outside, isn’t it? E frig afară nu-i aşa ?
printr-un răspuns afirmativ sau negativ: Yes it is / No, it isn’t. Da, este./ Nu, nu este.

I am efficient, aren’t I? Sunt eficient, nu-i aşa ?

 Dacă subiectul din prima parte a întrebării disjunctive este un pronume sau adjectiv
nehotărât, pronumele din partea a doua este he, she, we sau they după sens:

formular, nu-i aşa ?
