“Ain´t” can be used in place of “am not, is not, are not, have not, has not”

– I ain´t gonna lose (I´m not going to lose)

– He ain´t heavy, he´s my brother (isn´t)

– I ain´t got nobody (haven´t)

“Ain’t” has a long and vital history as a substitute for “isn’t,” “aren’t” and so on. It was originally formed from a contraction of “am not” and is still commonly used in that sense. Even though it has been universally condemned as the classic “mistake” in English, everyone uses it occasionally as part of a joking phrase or to convey a down-to-earth quality.

But if you always use it instead of the more “proper” contractions you’re sure to be branded as uneducated.

It’s usually an abbreviation of “are not.” Sometimes though, it could be “am not” as in “I ain’t going.” Ain’t is used so often, that it could be a number of contractions. I’ve heard “She ain’t going” meaning “She isn’t going.” Is there an official abbreviation? Originally, there was, but it is so informal, that “ain’t” is a part of everyday life, like it or not.

Ain’t ain’t a word. The proper term is either isn’t or aren’t, ain’t is LAZY TALK and therefore it is an abbreviation of NOTHING. It depends on what the PROPER term would be as to what you should use(either is not or are not.)

“ain’t” isn’t a word. It’s slang, not proper english. It’s basically equivalent to “is not” or “are not”, since it is used in both the singular and plural senses.

And the word you want is “contraction”.

Ain’t is a contraction originally just for “am not”, but can include “is not”, “are not”, “has not”, or “have not” in the common vernacular. In some dialects it is also used as a contraction of “do not”, “does not”, and “did not”, as in I ain’t know that.

Ain’t is a made up contraction of “am not”. It’s spelled incorrectly to be a contraction of “am not” and it is just improper English.
