Related to arent: wasnt, ARNT


(ɑrnt, ˈɑr ənt)
1. contraction of are not.
2. contraction of am not (used interrogatively).
[as contraction of am not, a doublet of ain ' t (without raising of the vowel), sp. aren't by r-less speakers; ar was later substituted for the long a by rhotic speakers]
usage: The interrogative first-person use of aren't (I'm right, aren't I?) is objected to by some because a declarative counterpart, I aren't, does not exist. Others, however, who would not use ain't, still prefer aren't I to the rather formal alternative am I not. See also ain't.
