    She don't


    I was listening to some music when I heard "she don't..." instead of "she doesn't". I'm pretty sure that I already heard that from someone in the street.
    I googled a bit and found some interesting threads where one was saying that it is not Standard English when another thought that it actually was a kind of dialect that you can associate to Standard English.
    Where is the truth, dear Members and Teachers ?

    Thanks for your answers :}

    Re: She don't

    It's not standard English.

    There may be dialects where it's common (well, there ARE dialects where it's common), but "standard" it is not.
    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.
