Question about the verb ending 지 I know this is mostly a negater so to speak, but often I hear it at the end of a verb and am not sure what exact meaning it gives the verb since it is not followed by 지 않아요, 지마세요, etc, but rather used alone at the end of a verb. Would this possibly be the informal of 지요 / 죠 because I thought that the 죠 was considered more of an informal ending as opposed to 지요. Any answer or direction for an answer would be great! 전말 감사합니다!!!!

* conjunctional ending. 1 '~지 않아요'.'~지 마세요'. 'is not~', 'do not ~' 2 '~지 ~' not A but B The whale is not fish but mammal. 고래는 포유류이지 물고기가 아니다. *finish ending. informal and friendly '~지/지?' -->'죠/지요'--> '요/요?'-->'다/까?' formal and official.
