Joan of Argghh!

Spanish wasn't difficult to learn once I let go of the "do". It's included in the conjugations of most verbs, and the, "what think you?" phrase carries it off perfectly; if you can channel Olde English, you can see the sense in the Latin conjugations.

Not very linguistically presented, this little comment of mine, but what's a girl to do?

The "do", of course, is not required in Ebonic English, as in:

"Why you go there, bro?"
