...please share what the definition of Ainu is and how one would use it in a sentence; this is a new word for me.

I am flummoxed with how to proceed from here; I can't seem to come up with ANYTHING!

The pedantic side of me takes issue with ain’t - apostrophes ought to be disallowed.

Perhaps David is trying to stymie this game🤣

Are we permitted to continue again from lint?

There is precedence to carry on when stuck, so carry on from Lint. (I believe I'm the one who stymied things the last time!)

I call fooey on no apostrophes. The Ainu are an ethnic group in Japan and we are not stuck there, I have a word that fits after it...

Then go for it Jeff - quick-like so things don't get mixed up! (and I did add that about the Ainu to David's post - always good to learn new things. They're close in origins to the Inuit in Canada's arctic.

I debated with myself whether the apostrophe in ain't was breaking the rules or not.  It was a fuzzy spot.  Since I found the Ainu word I decided to just carry on and see if posed too hard a challenge!  ;)    I will admit Ainu was a word I wasn't familiar with either.  I probably should have just posted a bit to define it for others too.  Thanks for adding that Jay.  

Jeff, by all means carry on!
