Sort of related, but I once called my sister "common", she said,

"I aren't common."

Lol for some reason that reminded me of that episode of Father Ted where Cuban priest Father Hernandez is visiting at the start of the episode, world class, happy days.

[PEDANT MODE]Of course, strictly speaking, "I are" is grammatically correct for West Riding dialect (it comes from the Scandinavian, apparently). [/PEDANT MODE]

So how do you shorten 'I am not' ?

Well, in English, as you know, "I am not" would become "I'm not", whereas in WR Yorkshire, "I are not" becomes "I aren't", when abbreviated. Leonardhenry's sister is therefore correct within the bounds of her own dialect.
