Assunto:  Answers with "I do"
 
Mensagem:  In informal English, is it common or possible to answer a question with a simple "I do!" acting like an intransitive verb as in the question bellow?

Do you speak English? 
I do!
(the word "speak" would be verb implicit in the context)

*Just to remember, I'm talking about informal/spoken English not correct grammar.


Thanks!
