The Irish for this is "so?", which turns a statement into a question. Not to be confused with "so!", which adds empthasis to the statement.
@catdraiochta cool, I think I can hear how that would work.
Now it's got me thinking about whether these word differences make it so they don't all work in the same kind of sentence.
I think my basic example of "eh?" is
"That's pretty good, eh?"
@catdraiochta Ooooh, I know exactly what you mean and I definitely use the American version of this. So it being a reversal of that makes sense.
A lot of the time I also add a trailing "or...?" or "or... what?" to that kind of question to leave room for another option besides yes and no:
"So, are we going to the movies or...?"
Oh I've heard the trailing or you're talking about! Yes the Irish ending "so?" (question) or "so!" (empthasis/exclamation) isn't like that. It's short and definite.
