Ain’t ain’t a word.” Most parents in the USA say that sentence to their kids. Mine too! For today’s English lesson, let’s have a look at this non-standard verb and how it is used (or shouldn’t be used) in English Conversation.

Here are the example sentences

Ain’t is used for every subject. Thus, you can say:

  • I ain’t interested in football.
  • We ain’t interested in football.
  • He ain’t interested in football.

It’s also possible to use ain’t in a yes/no question

  • Ain’t we going to the beach today?
  • Ain’t he supposed to be wearing a seatbelt?
  • You like my new idea? Ain’t I so smart?!

We also use ain’t got, which means don’t have.

  • I ain’t got enough money to buy a new car.
  • Jack said he ain’t got enough time to finish the project this week.
  • I opened the fridge, and we ain’t got anthing to eat. I’m going shopping.
