Maybe I’m missing something, but:
As for smartphones, they are expensive, aren’t they?
Shouldn’t it be “高いですか”? If not, how would you translate “As for smartphones, they are not expensive, are they?”?
Smartphones, are they not expensive?/aren’t they expensive?
(Almost in a rhetorical way, like speaker already knows or suspects they are indeed expensive )
Smartphones, are they expensive?
(Sounds like they genuinely don’t have any clue whether they are cheap or not)
I would expand but it’s 2 am and I’m tired lmao hope this helps so last a little bit
I see, the question tag carries the negative form, so it’s just that the translation is a bit loose. Question answered, thank you very much.
