    what do you doing

    i have heard,especially in the movies and casual speech, many times that "what do you doing" is used instead of "what are you doing?". is it grammatically correct, or it became accepted because it is widely used or what? or it has a nuance and it doesnt mean "what are you doing", so it means something else?
    i really wonder it, i have encountered it so many times and i am trully curious about it.
    thank you inadvance

    Re: what do you doing

    Welcome to the forums.

    It is grammatically incorrect and I have not heard it. Is it possible that what you are hearing is "What do you think you are doing?" or [possibly] the colloquial "What ya doin'?"
