Don't YOU worry #2 (permalink) Tue Dec 27, 2005 2:08 am   Don't YOU worry

Yes, don't you worry is OK, too-- it is a little stronger, more concerned, or more personal than don't worry. Some others:

Never you mind.
Don't you fret.
Don't you forget!

Don't you worry #3 (permalink) Tue Dec 27, 2005 11:01 am   Don't you worry
 

Hi Angela,

I deliberately chose this particular construction with you to show that the man is really concerned for the woman, in other words he is reassuring her. You can expand this idea by saying: Don't you worry about it.

Is not Don't you worry about it a question rather than a statement?

No, here it is not a question; it is imperative used as reassurance. It has the same meaning as Don't worry, but with emphasis.

I am thankful for your help!
