Hi!
some problems with this sentence, I can't figure out if it's a supposition or assertion:
a mother adresses her children, who have just lost their father and cry heavily upon his grave. She says
"ain't none of you'll look after me as good as your dad"

is she saying
"anyway, none of you will be able to look after me as good as your dad"
or
"is one of you at least going to look after me as good as..."

or sth else that i didn't catch?

Thanks a lot!

    Hi again... this first idea is correct. In "proper" English, the sentence would read "not one of you will care for me as well as your dad did".
