I agree with Drag0nspeaker. On the other hand, I found another word that looks a synonym for the words detainment and detention in the context of holding a person in custody. The word is detainer. I look into a dictionary and found a similar meaning. Is there any difference between this word and the others two or they are interchangeable in this context with no exception?

I have seen some sentences that do not complete the basic grammatical structure and just end incompletely. What are they meanings and why they are written on that way?

Examples

Do you want to?
You want to, don't you?

There is nothing after to.
What is the topic name in grammar for such sentence structure?
