An interjection popular in Canadian
speech. According to linguists, a "politeness marker."
Adding "eh" to a sentence can indicate the speaker's willingness to accept dissent or to invite further discussion. Has been referred to as an "articulated question mark."
The interpretation of "eh" as carrying meaning beyond other routine interjections (huh?) is supposed to be uniquely Canadian
. "Ascertaining the comprehension, continued interest, agreement, etc., of the person or persons addressed" is how the Canadian Oxford Dictionary puts it.
"Let's do something, eh?" -- where 'eh' is 'do you agree?'
"We could get a pizza, eh?" -- where 'eh' is 'if you would like to'
"I don't know about that, eh?" -- where 'eh' is 'but perhaps I might be convinced if you explained further'
"What's that, eh?" -- where 'eh' is 'I would appreciate, friend of mine, hearing your interpretation'
"The beer's cheap here, eh?" -- where 'eh' is 'so what would you like to do about that'
"It's after last call, eh?" -- where 'eh' is 'were you aware'

<John> Pass me a beer!
<John> Pass me a beer, eh?
<Tim> No thanks
<Captain John> Hand o'er the rum.
<1st Mate Tim> Aye!
the proud Canadian saying for basically anything like right?, do you?, isn't it, etc.
(and as a t-shirt said:
why do Canadians say 'EH'?
B/C IT'S BETTER THAN SAYING 'HUH')
