PostSubject: Short Answers   Wed Apr 16, 2008 6:08 am

Saying ‘Yes, I do. / No, I don’t’ in English is more polite than just saying ‘Yes. / No.’ that’s why short answers are very commonly used.
To form the short answer, you use the first word from the question. (This is either an auxiliary verb or a form of ‘be’.)
Use the long form (he does) in affirmative answers (yes).
Use the short form (he doesn’t) in negative answers (no).



Mind: If ‘you’ is the subject of the question, ‘you’ must be replaced by ‘I’ or ‘we’.


If the question starts with ‘are you’, ‘are’ must sometimes be replaced by ‘am’.
