Proper usage of the words Don’t & Doesn’t
Just so that we’re all on the same page, and because it’s becoming a pet-peeve of mine when I hear the words used incorrectly, I feel like I need to write a blog post about an aspect of English Grammar that might be easily confusable: The usage of Don’t and Doesn’t.
Below are examples of both improper and proper usage of these words in sentences.
#1: Wrong Usage: He don’t need to meet me tomorrow.
#1 Correct Useage: He doesn’t need to meet me tomorrow.
#2 Wrong Usage: We doesn’t need to hang out tomorrow
#2 Correct Usage: We don’t need to hang out tomorrow.
#3 Wrong Usage: I doesn’t need to be there.
#3 Correct Usage: I don’t need to be there.
I know that it is really easy to let the wrong usage roll off your tongue, but I feel like, for the sake of our language and for our own image, we all need to strive to use the proper form of this word in its proper context.
Thank you… that is all :)
