: : Hi!
: : A grammar book says that the following tag question is good. But my American friend disagrees. Which opinion should I follow?
: : So Neil wouldn't come, wouldn't he?
: : Thanks a lot for your help.
: So Neil wouldn't come, would he? That's the way it is usually said. I agree with your American friend.
I can find agreement with your grammer book but it's a form of words I would avoid.
