Some contractions lead to homophony, which sometimes leads to spelling mistakes. Confusion is particularly common between his (for “it is/a”) and the possessive pronoun sound, and sometimes similar between you and yours. To confuse have or -`ve with from (as in “would of” for would have), see Weak and strong forms in English. Although there is no contraction for am in Standard English, there are some familiar or dialectal forms that can fulfill this role. These can be used in declarative sentences whose default form says I`m not, and in questions with the standard form, right? In the declarative case, the standard contraction that I am is not available, but this does not apply to questions where speakers may feel the need for a negative contraction to form the analogue of, not true, not true, etc. (see § Contractions and inversion below). Contractually agreed forms of questions are more common in informal English. They are often found in tag questions. For the possibility of not being I (or other dialectal alternatives) instead of what I am not under contract to use, see the contractions that do not represent above. Short/contracted `s` forms and `would have had two different long forms: negative auxiliary verbs: contracted forms: pronunciation Contractions were first used in the language in the early 17th century and in writing in the mid-17th century, when difficulty lost its accent and tone and formed the -n`t contraction. Around the same time, contract aid was used for the first time.
When it was first used, it was limited to writing only fiction and drama. Im 19. und 20. In the nineteenth century, the use of contractions in writing outside of fiction such as personal letters, journalism, and descriptive texts spread.  When we write a short form, we replace the missing letter with ` (called an apostrophe). Most English auxiliary verbs – but no lexical verbs – have a negative morpheme -n`t.  A small number of defective auxiliary verbs do not take this morpheme. Help must never accept this morpheme.
Am is not only used in non-standard English varieties; Otherwise, it has no negative form. In addition, Will has an irregular negative will not instead of the expected *will and will have an irregular negative will instead of the expected (and now archaic) will*not. Shall has two different pronunciations, a weak form in which one can barely hear the sound of the vowel, which is the normal pronunciation in the middle of sentences, and a strong form if one wants to emphasize the vowel where it is underlined. The weak form looks like this: shll. And the strong form looks like this: should. Negative contractions like Shan`t don`t always have a strong pronunciation. There is no weak form of Shan`t. Note, however, that there is an r sound in shan`t that is pronounced exactly as the r sound in are not and cannot. Ain`t (described in more detail in the article ain`t) is colloquial language and a contraction for “I don`t have”, “is not”, “was not”, “are not”, “were not”, “were not”, “did not have” and “did not have”.
 In some dialects, “ain`t” is also used as a contraction of “do not”, “does not”, “did not”, “cannot/can not”, “could not”, “will not”, “would not” and “should not”. The use of “ain`t” is a constant subject of controversy in English.  Various linguists, including Geoff Pullum, Paul Postal, and Richard Hudson, as well as Robert Fiengohas, have suggested that in cases like I want to go is a special case of an auxiliary verb with an unstretched form.  Rodney Huddleston opposes this position in The Cambridge Grammar of the English Language, but Robert Levine disagrees with these proposals.  BetteLou Los describes Pullum`s arguments as “convincing.”  However, the above understanding of excipients is not the only one in the literature, especially in the case of verb forms that can be called auxiliary verbs, even if they do not accompany another verb. Other approaches to defining auxiliary verbs are described below. If have is a complete verb, we do not use the short form. For the pronunciation of the target and shan`t shapes, now log in to the audio link. Note: `s can be used to signify that it is or a. For example: She is English. (She is English).
She has a dog. (She has a dog.) You can use a contract form with any name. For example: Mark is here. / The book is on the table. The forms are very common in oral, but are used less often in writing. Contractions of the type described in this document should not be confused with abbreviations, such as e.B. Ltd. for “Limited”.
Contraction abbreviations, such as int`l for international, are considered abbreviations because their contracted forms cannot be pronounced in the language. Abbreviations also include acronyms and acronyms. In The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy (1762), the narrator`s father explains that “The auxiliary verbs we deal with here,…, are lit; was; ont; had; do; did so; do; done; suffering; must; should; will; would be; may; could; debts; should; used; or is he not used to doing it. AUXILIARY VERBS or auxiliary verbs fulfill the same role in the conjugation of main verbs, which is what inflection does in classical languages, although even in these languages the substantial verb is sometimes used as a help verb. Verbs that are always representative of others are: May, may, should, must; II. Those who are sometimes auxiliary and sometimes main verbs are: want, have, do, be and let go. : 202 contractions are a common feature of English, commonly used in the common language. In written English, contractions are used in mostly informal writing and sometimes in formal writing.  They usually involve the elision of a vowel – an apostrophe inserted in its place in written English – possibly accompanied by other changes. .
