Ending in ね?

Postby street fighter » Wed 08.03.2005 5:16 pm

I see alot of sentences that end in ne, but my dictionary gives a stupid explanation, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me what it means. As far as i can tell the sentence makes sense until ne is added... what does it do to the sentence?
Thanks

It's a particle that has a similar meaning in English as "ya know?"

It is (in some books) called the confirmation particle. sorce is correct with "ya know" but it also encompasses ideas like "... isn't it?"
