Assunto:  Re: Ain't as Has/Have Not
Mensagem:  Henri, Good point! "Ain't" is often used as if it were some other verb besides "be": "Ain't never been there" "Ain't never seen such a thing" "Ain't never done that"..... etc, etc. Usually the word "never" is also used, and notice that makes the famous double negative which is incorrect in standard English.
