question to native speakers
Hi  to you all native speakers, just a little question  as I am working on a worksheet about things  you must or mustn īt do at home( trying to squeeze things as our school year is coming to an end and I think there are plenty of things I didn īt  have time to study) Anyway would it be correct for me to entitle it : THE DOES AND DON īTS AT HOME. Thanks for your answer, hugs Sylvie

I favour "dos and donīts". Some prefer "doīs and donīts". Whatever the personal preference is, I doubt if there are many educated native speakers who would opt for "does".

I agree with Alex. I think do īs and don īts is more common than dos and don īts, partly because "dos" looks too much like the Spanish word for 2.

In my neck of the woods, Doīs and Donīts is used

Thanks  for your answers dear all, I will choose the option  DO īS with apostrophe and if you  want to change you will be free to do so, Hugs from  Normandy on a nice winter day!!!!!!Sylvie
