Chiefly Southern U.S. var of haunt, originally, but the meaning has since morephed to mean more than a ghost. It can also mean a scary bitch or mean person, usually a woman.
I tried to kill her with kindness, but that haint is just full up with meanness.

A contraction of have/has not. It arose in the 1800s in the American South, and it's prevalent in Mark Twain literature. It's still used some by old people and really rural people, but it's largely a dead phenomenon.
-I hain't been anywhere today.
-Hain't you got anything better to do?

Verb, past tense.

A contraction of the words "have" and "aint", resulting in a synonym to "have not".
"I h'aint even got my lunch today".
