* It's noted in ''Discworld/UnseenAcademicals'' that if the Patrician had ended his analysis of Glenda with "Am I right?" he'd have looked like a smug git, but he doesn't, because Lord Vetinari does not need to ask people if he's right.

The JapaneseLanguage has the word "ne", which pretty much means the same thing. Using it at the end of an English sentence still counts as GratuitousJapanese, ne? The fact that this is a natural and frequently occurring feature of the language doesn't mean, however, that it can't be overdone, as you can simply expand it to, "Nee nee? So desu nee?" ''Ad nauseam.''

Added DiffLines:
