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'

The Canadian word that can change any sentence into a question. (no matter what)
American Way:
<John> Pass me a beer!
<Tim> Aight...

Canadian Way:
<John> Pass me a beer, eh?
<Tim> No thanks
<John> Eh?

Pirate Way:
<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')
person: that's pretty cool, eh?

a word used to make someone agree with you, also many americans think canadians say it in every sentance while americans say it just as much as canadians.
"that movie was pretty good, eh?"
"yeah it wasn't bad"
