Today I stumbled upon following example of sentence 今晩の番組で何かあるかい? konban no bangumi de nanka aru kai ? As I understand from dictionary , this particle signifies "yes/no" question. Are this particle usual for colloquial language only or its regular particle ? Regards, アレクス

アレックスさん、 The ending particle KAI is very colloquial and only used in casual situations - and also, mostly used by male speakers. In Colloquial speech, KAI is used instead of KA to mark a question. KAI has a softer, friendlier tone than the rather abrupt KA. -Sayaka :P
