In English the rule tends to be that "yes" and "no" don't mean "I
agree" and "I disagree" like in other languages, but that "yes"
asserts the positive and "no" asserts the negative:
Does it work? Yes, it works.
Does it work? No, it doesn't work.
Doesn't it work? Yes, it does work. ["does" added for
Doesn't it work? No, it doesn't work.
