Yes, really... And the way you stated it, it IS "way too narrow", but only because you left out the the "Five W's" (and 'H'), which must also end with a question mark. That is basic English grammar, and it goes a long way to help prevent miscommunication.
At a very young age, children learn that in English, "who, what, when, where, why, and how" are the primary leading words in questions. They are called in English grammar the "Five W's" (plus 'H'). They are taught again at a later age as investigative priciples :
The Five Ws, Five Ws and one H, or the Six Ws are questions whose answers are considered basic in information-gathering. They are often mentioned in journalism (cf. news style), research, and police investigations. They constitute a formula for getting the complete story on a subject. According to the principle of the Five Ws, a report can only be considered complete if it answers these questions starting with an interrogative word:
- Who is it about?
- What happened?
- When did it take place?
- Where did it take place?
- Why did it happen?
Some authors add a sixth question, “how”, to the list, though "how" can also be covered by "what", "where", or "when":
- How did it happen
Each question should have a factual answer — facts necessary to include for a report to be considered complete. Importantly, none of these questions can be answered with a simple "yes" or "no".
In British education, the Five Ws are used in Key Stage 3 (age 11–14) lessons.
The keywords you mentioned "Is, Are, Do" are primarily used for simple "yes" or "no" questions, and not for seeking information where the "Five W's" are important.
Although it is considered lower class slang to form a question as a statement followed by ", right?", it is considered to be bad grammar and annoys many people.
Just making a statement followed by a question mark is a sure sign of a lack of English proficiency, identifying somebody immediately as a "foreigner" to native English speakers. And leaving out the question marks just makes them bold unsubstantiated claims, which demand supporting evidence and substantiating proof.
With poor grammar, you are sure to be misunderstood, and you can make people angry when what you intended as a question is received as misinformation or a challenge to debate with others.
Grammar is important for understanding, ESPECIALLY in a multi-cultural forum such as this, and even more so in a thread that invites debate like this one.
However, your posts are filled with other annoying grammatical errors as well, beyond just question formation. Even so, we (mostly) think we understand what you are trying to say... But good grammar would help... A lot!
