Grammer question for you

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by silent method, Aug 4, 2005.


  1. Ok, follow me with this

    didn't = did not right?

    People often say

    "You did that, didn't you?"

    so

    You did that, did not you?

    that dosn't make sence at all, is it poor grammer to say "didn't you" or is it just one of those things?

    #1: Grammar, not grammer ;)
    #2: Sense, not sence ;)
    #3: Vorago beat me to "dosn't" :spit:
    #4: Translation of "You did that, didn't you?" is actually "You did that, did you not?" and while it is somewhat redundant, it's acceptable grammar.
