Assunto:  Aren't I playing? Why?

Hi Fábio.   Try pronouncing  "Amn't I playing?" rapidly, as in part of a dialog.


Now you know why people will say  "Aren't I playing?" even though most know that it is not grammatically correct!   Wrong, but fairly common.  


I am giving you a good answer, aren't I?


Ain't English fun?!?!?
