57. Power ender “ใญ”

This is used at the end of a sentence and contains a variety of meanings. We will look at it here as a question tag: don’t you… isn’t it…

ใ‚ใชใŸใฏใซใ‚“ใ˜ใ‚“ใŒๅซŒใ„ใงใ™ใญใ€‚
anata wa ninjin ga kirai desu ne.
You don’t like carrots, don’t you?

 

ใใฎๆ˜ ็”ปใฏใจใฆใ‚‚ใ„ใ„ๆ˜ ็”ปใ ใฃใŸใญใ€‚
sono eiga wa totemo ii eiga datta ne.
Don’t you think that was a good movie?

 

ไปŠๆ—ฅใฏๆš‘ใ„ใงใ™ใญใ€‚
kyou wa atsui desu ne.
Today is very hot, isn’t it?


If you want to use ne as a question tag, it helpsย 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 hisย listeners agree with what was said.

A very useful phrase for whenever something good happens is:

ใ„ใ„ใญใ€‚
ii ne.
Isn’t that great!
