No, you won't fond it in the dictionary. It is slang for isn't.

Actually, it can be found in many dictionaries. If you consider isn't or can't words, then you consider ain't a word, they are all contractions. It is improper English, though.

I swear I put find instead of fond, sorry. And thank you jp, for that info.

I think ain't is more of a slang term, but I believe they both mean the same

Ain?t is a colloquial word meaning "has not", "have not", "is not" or "am not". The word is widely disapproved as being nonstandard or proper. For more information check out: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ain%27t.

Go on Microsoft Word and type it in. If its corrected by spell check, than ain't ain't a word. But my iPod touch says it IS a word, so who knows?

Ain't is the "slang" term for the contraction "is not" which is "isn't "
