    Post ain't

    What's the exactly meaning of this word? And when do we have to use it instead of the verb ''to be''?because...as far as i know it has something in common with the verb ''to be'' or maybe is more than that..maybe is the same verb in other form...hmm..can anyone help me?

    Re: ain't

    "ain't" is a nonstandard 'uneducated' contraction for am not, is not, are not, have not and has not.

    (I)(She)(They) ain't going to the party.

    (I)(He) ain't seen that movie.

    I recommend that you not use "ain't".
