"Cant fight no more", is this grammatically correct? If not, what is the correct way of saying this?

  • Is that a misspelling, or did you really mean "cant"? – Kit Z. Fox Feb 15 '13 at 12:08

The double negative isn’t grammatical in Standard English, but it is in other dialects. To be grammatical in Standard English it would have to be ‘Can’t fight any more.’

    To be "grammatical", it should probably include a subject. – FumbleFingers Feb 15 '13 at 12:47
  • @FumbleFingers Aye, I. – Mr Lister Feb 15 '13 at 13:00
  • Use "can't fight any more" or "can fight no more"; both OK as single negatives. – GEdgar Feb 15 '13 at 15:43
