    You / You are

    Are these correct? What do they mean?

    1. What are you doing now
    2. What you doing now? (Is this incorrect? I hear people say this sometimes.)

    1. is OK; 2. is not Standard English, which isn't to say that it's not OK in some other dialect of English.

    Actually, it's widely used in all situations:
