  4. Origin: 1. From the earlier form an't, a contraction of am not, are not, and is not. The shift from /ænt/ to /eɪnt/ parallels a similar change in some dialects with can't. In other dialects the pronunciation shifted to /ɑːnt/, and the spelling aren't, when used to mean "am not", is due to the fact that both words are pronounced /ɑːnt/ in some non-rhotic dialects. Historically, ain't was present in many dialects of the English language, but not in the southeastern England dialect that became the standard, where it is only found in the construction aren't I?.
