Power ender "ね"

Oni's picture

This is used at the end of a sentence and contains a variety of meanings. We will look at it as a question tag.

As a question tag: don't you... isn't it...

あなたはにんじんが嫌いです anata wa ninjin ga kirai desu ne. You don't like carrots, don't you?

その映画はとてもいい映画だった sono eiga wa totemo ii eiga datta ne. Don't you think that was a good movie?

今日は暑いです kyou wa atsui desu ne. Today is very hot, isn't it?

If you want to use ne as a question tag, it helps to nod your head, or change the inflection to let the listener know you would like a response. It is usually used when the speaker feels fairly certain his listeners agree with what was said.

A very useful phrase for whenever something good happens is:

いい ii ne. Isn't that great!
