Ain't is one of those multiple use contractions...

We ain't... (We are not)
I ain't... (I am not)
He ain't... (He is not)

And then there is "cain't", meaning... Not going to do that even if I could.

It's not what you say or even how you say it that is most important... it's what you do.

Actually, I believe that it is the contraction for 'am not'.


In your examples, they are saying:

We ain't ... (We am not)
I ain't ... (I am not)
He ain't ... (He am not)

Which is why it is considered improper English. I believe you wrote in parentheses what people were trying to say, not what they actually were saying.


However, proper English or not, it is one of the many words that adds color and makes talking to people so much fun. If we all spoke proper English, it would like advertising Baskin Robins with it's 3 flavors of ice cream.

If you really wanted to pick nits, I believe your last sentence should have been, "I've seen or I saw is more correct."

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, irregardless is a nonstandard adverb used primarily in speech. Regardless should be used instead.
------------------------------
ir·re·gard·less\ˌir-i-ˈgärd-ləs\
adverb
nonstandard
: regardless
Origin: probably blend of irrespective and regardless.
First use: circa 1912
Usage: Irregardless originated in dialectal American speech in the early 20th century. Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. The most frequently repeated remark about it is that “there is no such word.” There is such a word, however. It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose. Its reputation has not risen over the years, and it is still a long way from general acceptance. Use regardless instead.

It is still a word, right?

Dictionary.com:
"....Those who use it, including on occasion educated speakers, may do so from a desire to add emphasis..."

"Word Origin and History for irregardless an erroneous word that, etymologically, means the opposite of what it is used to express. Attested in non-standard writing from at least 1870s (e.g. "Portsmouth Times," Portsmouth, Ohio, U.S.A., April 11, 1874: "We supported the six successful candidates for Council in the face of a strong opposition. We were led to do so because we believed every man of them would do his whole duty, irregardless of party, and the columns of this paper for one year has [sic] told what is needed."); probably a blend of irrespective and regardless. Perhaps inspired by the colloquial use of the double negative as an emphatic."


...but still a word.
