How to use contractions
Contractions are a type of abbreviation in which letters from the middle of the word are omitted. Examples include:
A contraction can also be an abbreviated form of more than one word, for example:
|I’ll||I will/I shall|
- You do not need to use a full stop at the end of contractions, because the last letter of the original word is still present.
- In contractions that represent more than one word, the letters that have been omitted should be replaced with an apostrophe.
