Am’t – a new word

The English language sometimes incorporates coined expressions.

I have a new one that needs to be incorporated into dictionaries: am’t

It’s a conjunction of am and not.

For example: “Are you going out?” “No I am’t (am not).”

Or: I am’t not going to drink and drive. (or whatever.)

It makes perfect sense.
