    Default Are these two sentences same in meaning and grammatical?

    1.He really respect them, but he don't like them.
    2.He really respect them, but don't like them.
    Do the sentence 1 and the sentence 2 have the same meaning?

    Check your verbs.

    Otherwise, I'd say both are okay. I find 1 more natural.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
