Mensagem:  Hi Folks, Here I am again, bothering you with another question about the contraction (?) AIN'T. I know that the use of this word is not polite. However I do listen it a lot (specially from african americans). Now my question is about using AIN'T as a negative form of GOT. Ex.: "We AIN'T GOT enough money to waste like this!" What is the polite way to say it? I'm asking you because "We didn't get..." sounds weird to me. Thank you guys once more for your patience! You're AWESOME =) Cheers, Henrique
