I amn’tJuly 10, 2013 -
Today when asked a simple question my two year old replied “I amn’t”. We laughed, but didn’t correct her, after all: she’s actually made a pretty sharp move there! I think the English language is more wrong than my daughter. It’s a silly language. Let’s consider the conjugation of other pronouns:
- You are not / You’re not / You aren’t
- He is not / He’s not / He isn’t
- They are not / They’re not / They aren’t
In any of these three cases the pronoun can be contracted, or the “are” and “is“. So why not “am“?
I amn’t sure why.
