Q: Please show me example sentences with Ain't (y que palabras pueden ser reemplazadas por 'ain't').
A: I'm from the southern USA, which is mostly where people say "ain't." It would be used anywhere where you could also say "is not"-- but I would probably avoid saying it because people might think you have bad grammar if you use it (it's not technically a "real" word). "Isn't" it a better choice ☺️
Q: Please show me example sentences with else (y su significado).
A: **How does it work and what does it mean**

"Someone else" can be used in this way: "Would you like someone else to drive you?" Or for example, imagine you walk into a room and see someone, you could ask "Is anyone else in here?"

Synonyms of "Y" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between x,y,and z and x,y and z ?
A: In this case there's no difference. Some people use "," before "and" and some don't.

However it can be used to emphasize the last item (z in this case). That's easy in speech. In writing you'd have to make the "and" or the "z" bold or underlined maybe,

For example: "x, y, AND z"
Here you're emphasizing that "z" is also included.
Q: What is the difference between in, on y at and . ?
A: “In” means that it is INSIDE something, for example:
“My phone was IN my backpack.”

“On” means that it is in contact with something, for example:
“The food was ON the bed.”

“At” is saying that it is in a location, for example:
“My cat is at the veterinary right now.”

Hope this helps~!

Today is the thirty-fifth since I started writing this diary.

I have a daughter, but I don't want to employee that because I feel it is terrible to entrust my daughter to someone who I don't know. In the first place, there is not culture to employee a nunny in Japan.

Q: What does '~y' means in this poem ?

I rise in the dawn, and i kneel and blow
Till the seed of the fire flicker and glow;
And then i must scrub and bake and sweep
Till stars are beginning to blink and peep;
And the young lie long and dream in their bed
Of the matching of ribbons for bosom and head,
"And their ~y goes over in idleness"
And they sigh if the wind but lift a tress;
While i must work because i am old
And the seed of the fire gets feeble and cold.
A: Look I found your poem : As Nathan said it is a mistake, the word missing is "day" And their day goes over in idleness"
