ain't: definition from Dictionary.com: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/ain%27t
For anyone who tells you "ain't" isn't a word, it's been around since at least 1780. It's not a FORMAL word, but it's plenty old enough to be a word. Language is dynamic.
Also if anyone says "snuck" isn't a word, you can point out it's good enough for most dictionaries.
@bluestarultor @anke i mean not necessarily? Any verb inflected via internal vowel shift is by definition irregular in English, so ‘correct’ is only defined by what people use and are comfortable with (something that is doubly true for new coinings, where a traditional usage does not exist)
Personally i prefer matching ‘write’ via proportional analogy so ‘yeet’ ‘yote’ and then either ‘yetten’ or ‘yittin’ depending on your particular accents strong/weak vowel pairs
