Contractions
Definition: Contractions that make a
negative
statement using the verb "
not
".
In
negative
contractions the "
o
" in "
not
" is replaced by an apostraphe:
not

=

n't
Examples: isn't, shouldn't, can't, mustn't, don't, won't
*Reminder*
- "
won't
" is a rare contraction therefore:
Wrong
:
will
+
not

=

willn't
Correct
:
will
+
not

=

won't
A
negative
contraction should
not
be used in a
negative
sentence.
A sentence that has two
negatives
is called a
double negative
.
When two
negatives
are used in the same sentence they
contradict
each other forming a
positive
statement.
Wrong
: They
aren't never
on time.
Correct
: They
aren't
on time./They are
never
on time.
Contractions can have
double
meanings so be careful that you are using the
correct
ones
Example
:
I'd
=
I+had , I+would
