    Ok, so am i right, that in standart english is ne negativ concord? My teacher told me to explain who to build negativ concord. As i see in the link you gave me it is so that negativ concord occurs mostly with don't, aren't and something like that, in some english dialects, right?

    In standard English, double negatives are not considered good grammar ... or else the message conveyed would be the opposite of what the speaker/writer intends.

    So, yes, the use of double negatives intentionally would be dialectical only or to identify oneself with someone who speaks a dialect predominantly.

    So negativ concord is the same as duoble negation?

    I think so ... if I'm reading those definitions right.
