Translation:Is that a chair?

If you are talking about standard written English, Is that a chair? is a neutral question, while That's a chair? is what I call a "surprise/confirmation question" (I'm not sure of the proper word) -- you would use it only if you had just heard someone call it a chair and you found that surprising and wanted to confirm that you heard correctly, so you repeat the statement but with a question intonation.
