Dear teachers,

When / For what purpose do we ask a question in the affirmative form? What difference does it make with the interrogative form?

It seems that when we ask a question in the interrogative negative form, we expect a positive answer.

Thank you for your help.

do i not eat ?

do i not eat ?

Incorrect.

Correct English is Do I not eat?

But in speech we commonly use the form Don't I eat?

[ Can you think of a context in which you would want to ask this question? ]
