Mensagem:  I don't know about the grammatical form except to say that when it gets to the "did, did not" phase of the argument the missing words are understood because they were used at the beginning of the dispute. It's what we call an argument between two five year olds. First kid: "You ate my candy." Second kid: "(I) Did not (eat your candy)." First kid: "(You)Did too (eat my candy)." Parent: "Both of you better shut up right now or I'm gonna make you real unhappy."
