Student or Learner
from jennifer lopez's lyric, there is one sentence stated "my love dont cost a thing"
should it be "my love doesn't cost a thing" or "my love don't cost a thing"?
I got this from other forum:
Since love is singular, we should use DOESN'T instead of DON'T, shouldn't we?note that both words 'love' and 'hope' are singular. Love and hope are concepts and you cannot make them plural.
Yes, it is not standard English.
Many songwriters, authors, and poets use non-standard dialects to create a particular mood or to fit into a particular cadence in their work.
It would be improper to use these dialect forms in standard prose writing.
