The word ain't is a contraction for am not , is not , are not , has not , and have not in the common English language vernacular. In some dialects ain't is also used as a contraction of do not , does not , and did not. The development of ain't for the various forms of to be not , to have not , and to do not occurred independently, at different times. The usage of ain't for the forms of to be not was established by the midth century, and for the forms of to have not by the early 19th century. The usage of ain't is a continuing subject of controversy in English. Ain't is commonly used by many speakers in oral and informal settings, especially in certain regions and dialects. Its usage is often highly stigmatized, and it can be used by the general public as a marker of low socio-economic or regional status or education level.

Models of idiom comprehension differ in their predictions concerning compositionality: Some claim that idiomatic meaning is the result of compositional analysis initiated at the earliest stages of comprehension, whereas others claim that compositional analysis occurs only at late stages, subsequent to direct retrieval—especially for idioms that are highly familiar. We evaluated these alternatives in four experiments by using a variety of online and offline comprehension measures. In Experiment 1, we analyzed the normative characteristics of idioms with respect to these predictions. In Experiments 2 through 4, we determined how these dimensions relate to several online measures of idiom comprehension. High familiarity was associated with good comprehension across all experiments; however, facilitative effects of decomposability were found only for tasks that required an overt semantic judgment. Word frequency, but not semantic decomposability of the idiom-initial verb, was associated with comprehension for some measures.

- В голосе мужчины чувствовалось какая-то озабоченность. - Я нашел его в паспорте и хочу разыскать владельца. Сердце Ролдана упало. Выходит, это не клиент.
Мидж… я уже говорил… - Да или нет: мог в ТРАНСТЕКСТ проникнуть вирус. Джабба шумно вздохнул. - Нет, Мидж. Это абсолютно исключено. - Спасибо.
