tag question (UK English, question tag) is a construction in which an interrogative element is added to a declarative or an imperative clause. The resulting speech act comprises an assertion paired with a request for confirmation. For instance, the English tag question “You’re John, aren’t you?” consists of the declarative clause “You’re John” and the interrogative tag “aren’t you?”
