Please help me to understand. My full sentence is "... as someone who don't/ doesn't only love his...". I have already tried them both and both sounds right.

This question came from our site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts.


Don't (do not) is the plural form, doesn't (does not) is the singular. She does, he doesn't, they do, they don't.

  • And, especially relevant to the question, someone does and someone doesn't. – Jason Bassford Supports Monica Apr 28 at 14:16
  • But "I do" and "you do" are both (usually) singular. – James K Apr 28 at 21:33
