Britain is authority of British language only? colonies and possessions of British Empire are not authority of British language? U. S. A. is not authority of British language also?-- Unlike for the French language, there is no authority for English. Nor is it needed, since it would only create more controversy than already exists.

But "I do" equal "I do do" also?

And "I do not" equal "I do not do" also?-- Yes and no. The second is called the 'emphatic' form of the present simple.

But "I am" equal "I do be" also?
And "I am not" equal "I do not be" also?-- No, not really. This form cannot be used with any subject other than an implied 'you'; it is called the 'persuasive emperative': 'Oh, do be quiet for a moment!'

But "I have" equal "I do have" also?
But "I have not" equal "I do not have" also? -- Yes and no. The second is called the 'emphatic' form of the present simple.

But "I did" equal "I did do" also?
And "I did not" equal "I did not do" also?-- Yes and no. The second is called the 'emphatic' form of the past simple.

But "I was" equal "I did be" also?
And "I was not" equal "I did not be" also?- Not used in modern English

But "I had" equal "I did have" also?
And "I had not" equal "I did not have"?-- Yes and no. The second is called the 'emphatic' form of the past simple.

Do you understand all of the answers above from Mr. M about the emphatic?
Dear Grammar GeekIs:

Is not the second mean for auxiliary "do", is the first mean for auxiliary "do".

Dear Grammar GeekIs:

Can "I do not live" speak "I live not"?

If simple present is "I live", Why, It is not "I live not"? Why, simple present is "I do not live"?

I live= I live not

I do live= I do not live= Do I live?
