I have received email where an english or supposed to be english wrote: I do remain waiting for.......... I know that auxiliary "do/did" has to be used for negative or interogative phrases only. I would like to know if the above phrase is correct ? Thanks in advance for clarification.
Hi, yes, Dio is right. Sometimes, we use the auxiliary "do" in order to give stress and emphasis. For example, someone can say "my leg hurts" and someone else says "my leg does hurt" to mean that his leg is really hurting, probably more than the guy who said it first. Hope this helped, thanks.
