For Whada ya go Why didn't use verb+ing for go it shouldn't be whada ya going ?
'Whada ya go' sounds to me like it means 'Where do you go?' You'd only say this in a context where it makes sense to say it.
meg2589I heard this line many times in English movies - "What do you doing here?". Is this sentence grammatically correct? Shouldn't it be "What are you doing here?" instead? I am unable to understand the reason as in the past continuous sentence it should be [IS/AM/ARE] + verb's I form + ing. Please throw some light on this.[/quote
