Mensagem:  Miguel, I would add that even most users of words like "ain't" think it is wrong, but they can't help using them because they learned those words as their predominant vocabulary at a very young age and then were chastised for it all through school. There are many subtle graduations of the language/class condition in America, ranging from people whose only idiom is largely non-standard usage and vocabulary to the opposite extreme of that minority that speaks only the most proper and correct language. In between are variations between the extremes, the most common one being a mix where the speaker can avoid "incorrect" usages at will, but can also speak in the vernacular.
