I've lately encountered several problems in colloquial English (I found those phrases in one media).
The native English says
1)" When do I get my money?"
I would say "When will(shall) I get my money?"
2) "They said you was important once"
I would say "They said you were important once"
Am I right?
What are these phrases? Errors? Dialect? Cockney English?
1- This is a common usage in British English, though many would prefer 'shall\will' there.
2- This is used by Cockneys and in other dialects, but most standard English speakers would consider it wrong. It would certainly be marked wrong in an ESL exam:
