lost word

ok… I am bored!

But you know what word I do not hear anymore? Ain’t!

I never hear kids saying I ain’t doing that…. once in a blue moon you will hear an elderly person say ain’t

I believe the teachers have almost eliminated that word now that is it in the dictionary. LOL As I kid I always was told Ain’t ain’t in the dictionary cause Ain;t ain’t any word….

ok back to sanity lol

have a great rest of your day

If you miss it, come to Georgia. It is alive and thriving here. Even in the Corporate environment of a Fortune 500 company, I hear the word all the time.

So far as bad grammar goes, I kind of like the word “ain’t”.  It is certainly better than kids today who use letters and numbers in place of words. ::shakes his old man cane::

@w_10 – agreed in that sometimes it is dialectical in nature- like a little tang of twang.

The word wasn’t used where I grew up.  I spent my teens/ high school in Quebec so learned a few unsavory French phrases though.

I remember saying ain’t as a kid. It’s true, you really don’t hear a lot of people saying it anymore.
