    Urgent:Are these sentences grammatically right to use ?

    Dear Members,

    I wanna clear some of mine doubts regarding following sentences.

    A) Is it grammatically right to use this sentence(?): I do not wanted..
    B) If it's right then pls tell me what is a diffrence between above sentence and this one(?): I do not want...

    Pls explain meaning and grammar logic of these sentences in detail.

    PS: One humble rqst, if you guys know Hindi then pls translate both the two sentences in Hindi also, so that I can understand it better. You can write Hindi using english words.

    Now the last question which is very much same with the above one.

    A) Is it grammatically right to use this sentence(?): I did not wanted..
    B) If the above one is right then pls tell me what is a diffrence between above sentence and the this one: I did not want...

    Pls explain meaning and grammar logic of these sentences in detail.

    PS: One humble rqst, if you guys know Hindi then pls translate both the two sentences in Hindi also, so that I can understand it better. You can write Hindi using english words.

    Talking Re: Urgent:Are these sentences grammatically right to use ?

    Hey mate,

    About your question :

    It's wrong to say : I do not wanted .
    The correct sentence is : I didn't want to .

    The difference between the sentences :

    I didn't want to (This is past simple)
    I do not want to (This is present simple)

    For the second :

    After (did) you have to use the verb in base, You can't say (I didn't wanted) - So you have to say (I did not want)
    P.S/ Not a teacher, But i think this is the truth .

    Hope this helps

    With 'did or 'did not' the verb that follows is not conjugated, the same applies to 'do' and 'do not'.

    I hope I don't see "I didn't wanted" anymore again.
