1. Tones in question tags.

Answer: Question tags are short questions added to the end of a statement

usually to produce a response from a hearer. We use a falling tone for question

tags when we expect the hearer to acknowledge that what we have just said is

correct, f.ex when we are giving our opinion:

They didn't PLAY very well , DID they ?

GREAT FILM , WASn't it ?

We use a rising tone when we invite the hearer to say whether what we have just

said is correct or not, for ex, when we are not certain that smth is true:

japanESE , ISn't It ?

Notice that question tags are often used after statements where the subject or

subject and verb have been left out.

Question tags usually have a falling tone when the statement is obviously


Ypu're not WELL , ARE you ?

We also use a falling tone when we want the hearer to admit that smth they may

not have accepted before is, in fact, correct:

TOLD you I was RIGHT , DIDn't ?

When both the statement and the question tag are positive , the question tag

usually has a rising tone:

Came by CAR , DID you ?

Question tags (will you, can't you, won't you, would you, shall we) can be added

to imperative sentences. These tags usually have a rising tone and are often

used to soften a request or command:

Let's get the EARlier train , SHALL we ?

either a rising or falling tone on the tag as appropriate.

B: What a stupid thing to do, ………….?

c. A: What a terrible noise.

3.Classification of vowels according to lip position

The shape of the mouth cavity is also largely dependent on the position of the

lips. When the lips are neutral or spread the vowels are termed unrounded. [i:,

i, e, ᵆ, a:, ^, ʒ:, ә]

When the lips are drawn together so that the opening between them is more or

less round the vowel is called rounded. [Ͻ, Ͻ:, u, u:]
