In response to she don't , written by Constanza on August 05, 1998 at 12:23:31
] I've found that form in Cecilia, Evelina and some of G. Heyer's books(I think I saw it somewhere in MP but cannot find it now). At first I thought it was a typo, but it happens too often for being one... Is that an old form? Can somebody explain? Please?
Don't know if this is any enlightenment, just a comment. My rather snobbish, afternoon-tea, former school marm grandmother, born in the late 1860's in the Salem, Massachusetts area would have said "she don't". I think I always figured it was a bygone style.
