Yes, as GWB says, they both are correct, but function differently.Hello,
Is the following correct?
1) She told me nothing, didn't she?
2) What about She told me nothing, did she?
Thank you in advance.
At the bottom of this BBC website page on tag questions, there is a section on "tag questions - special features". Under "positive statement - positive tag" they say:I thought that the general rule of thumb was that when the sentence is affirmative, the tag is negative and when the sentence is negative, the tag is affirmative:
He didn't go, did he?
He did go, didn't he?
Therefore, in this case, your choice would be between these two:
She told me nothing, didn't she? OR
She didn't tell me anything, did she?
If I'm wrong on this one, please give a source (on the web or in a book) so I can update my thinking on this topic!
