Is Hows you grammatically correct

Is “How’s you?” grammatically correct?

Since ‘is’ is a form of the verb ‘be’, so to quote the great Chandler Bing: “Could it be more wrong?” 😀
I'm so glad somebody put up this query! Many thanks ! ‘How’s you?’ is another one of pop culture’s grammatical evils! As a grammar coach, it infuriates me inside (albeit I maintain a calm countenance on the surface :p) to have myself enquired after in such fashion!
‘How’s you?’ is essentially the contraction for ‘How is you ?’ Stating the universally known here, that the pronoun ‘you’ never works with ‘is’, making the usage ‘How’s you?’ absolutely wrong and invalid ! Whatever happened to good old ‘How are you?’ that's been around for as long as can be remembered ?
‘You’ as a pronoun in English is always given plural treatment.
Hence the combinations of you with forms of be in the present and past tense are as follows :
Present tense :
You + are
Past tense :
You + were
The forms ‘is’ and ‘was’ find no usage in conjunction with ‘you’ in legitimate grammar except for literature and motion pictures where the characters are deliberately made to use the combination in their speech to establish their rural or uneducated background.

This english is wrong.
It could be that when this was used the confusing thing was the idea of ‘you' which is in singular form with the implication that ‘you’ is a single entity.
“You is single.

“You is right.

“You is understood.

Meaning to say that the ones who are, is plural, whereas ‘you' is “a person”.
This singular form got the person to see how only one person can be right and that being the other individual but not themselves.
Mind yourself there, both are wrong.
This perhaps goes back to the medieval times where the people were differentiated based on their inahbitation in villages.
It is wrong and cannot be accepted in English language or as correct grammar.
Those were days when the impression of one person was believed to have been made as to enforce others to be like him/her.
In the process of wanting to have that understood, this “you”, may have been reffering to a person who perhaps was trying to tell he/she is the “only” one who is and no one else.
This would bring about questions like,
“How is you?”
Both the questioner and the listener are found to be grammatically incorrect.
In colloquial english it is correct as its the language used whilst not using the rules of grammar books.

No, it is not.
The correct way to say it is:
How are you?
The word is, is used when we refer to a person place or thing in the 3rd person (She, He, It) singular.
You is 2nd person singular, and is used with the word are.

No, it’s not correct grammar, the correct form being ‘How are you?’.
It is, however, an extremely popular greeting, especially here in the UK and even fully paid-up members of the Grammar Police, such as I, have been known to bandy it about indiscriminately.

Grammatically? It is undeniably wrong! But sometimes it’s quirky and kind of fun.
(There is also “How am you?” which is, if anything, even more worserer than the thing what you said!)
The context is important.
If two people understand the rules, and then under specific circumstances choose to flout them for dramatic or comic effect – then that is fine.
But that kind of solecism has no place in formal, professional communications or between strangers who would like to be taken seriously.
(In them cases, speeching should always be done totally proper-like!)

Yes, it’s entirely correct as a colloquialism or a dialect form.
If you are asking is it a part of Standard English, then no, but Standard English is emphatically NOT the only form of English that can be technically correct.
People would do well to remember that Standard English is itself a dialect, one of many dialects that make up the English language.
All forms of English are now considered dialects by sociolinguists.
This is 2019, not 1920.

Is "How's you?" grammatically correct?
No, it is not.
The correct version, as of the year 2019, is “How are you.

The reason for this is that the word “you” is always grammatically treated as if it were a plural, even though the word “you” in fact sometimes functions as plural and sometimes functions as singular.
Many other languages have a unique second-person singular pronoun, different from the second-person plural pronoun, but NOT English, at least not in the year 2019.
If you were to drop back a few centuries, you would find an English language in which the word “you” always implied more than one person.
In those days, the singular version was “thou” or “thee,” with “thou” being used as a subject and “thee” being used as an object.
(Compare this to the use of “I” and “me” in the first person.
)
In those long-ago days, the correct version would have been “How are you?” if addressing two or more people at once, but “How art thou?” if addressing only one person.
But in the year 2019, almost any use of the word “thou” is comically archaic.
The exception is in religious language, because the highly venerated King James Version of the Bible is old enough to make extensive use of the word “thou,” and prayers and other religious orations and writings often follow the lead of the KJV.

No.
It is not.
It does still get the point across, but, “How are you?” is correct.

Is "How's you?" grammatically correct?
No.
The personal pronoun “you” requires the second person form of the verb “to be” (“are”), not the third person form (“is”).
So the correct way to say it is “How are you?” or if you want to contract it, “How’re you?”

No.
The second person conjugation of “to be” in English for either singular or plural is “are”, regardless of whether “you” is a second person singular or second person plural.
The only time you would use “is” with the word “you” is like how I did it in the previous sentence.
I was referring to the word “you” and not to a person or group of people I am speaking to, so in that context it is a 3rd person singular subject.
Instead of “How’s you?” you would say “How are you?” You could also say “How’re you?” and it would be grammatically correct but an uncommon usage except in certain dialects, so people might not understand you if you use the contraction.

Fine, thank you for asking.

Its perfectly correct speech in some regions of the UK.
Just not in written English.
There is no such thing as correct speech in the UK as dialects are all equally valid despite what some ignorant people might tell you.
Texting is just another dialect the purpose is communication if the person who recieves the message understands it what ever it contains is correct.
Text speak is a language all of its own it doesnt have to conform to written English because it isnt written English.

It’s grammatically incorrect, as many here have explained in detail.
However, I find it to be very cheering emotionally to be asked the question, because of its informal, ‘joshing’ tone.
I love the correct use of grammar, but I know that slang has important benefits, too.

In quotes it is perfectly correct, in that it is a purposeful relaxation of formality between friends.
The correct form is ‘How are you?’
It shows that you know someone well enough not to speak correctly.
The response ‘I’m good’ is similar, and became assimilated into the language so quickly that it is simply accepted without question by all who use it.
I personally don’t use either expression, simply because I don’t wish to.
