Am is used with I. But in expressions like ''Aren't I?'' are is used with I. Why is this so?

It's just one of those little unexplainable quirks that make English such a delight to study.

Hi Jackson

Am is used with I. But in expressions like ''Aren't I?'' are is used with I. Why is this so?
The reason is that "Aren't I?" is the short form for 'Am I not?' Please also note that you cannot say "I aren't clever."
The word "ain't", a short form for 'am not', 'is not', 'are not', 'has not' or 'have not' is considered wrong by many people.

Best wishes.
