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.
Well, one excwption I can think of is that in some places like the US I think, the use "So" at the beginning of a question instead of the end, so that wouldn't be compatable.
An American might ask, "So we're going to the movies?"
An Irish peraon would ask, "We're going to the cinema so?"
"So we're going to the cinema so?" would be reduntant, and would sound strange to everybody, I think.
@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.
