    To say n't?: if negation pending is true, say n't.

    To say n't:
        if question pending is true and the story viewpoint is first person and the prior named noun is nothing:
            if story tense is continuous present tense, stop; [to avoid "Am not I carrying..."]
            if story tense is present tense and passive voice is true, stop; [to avoid "Amn't I carried by..."]
        now negation pending is false;
        if the story viewpoint is first person and the prior named noun is nothing and the story tense is in any present tense and question pending is false and could-would-should is "", say " not";
        otherwise say "n't".
