What are Contractions? : What are Contractions? 1. A contraction is a shortened version of the written and spoken form of a word, syllable, or word group. For Example: Did not = Didn’t Do not = Don’t I would = I’d He would = He’d She would = She’d In a sentence these might appear as follows: “I’d love to come with you to the party.” “Don’t worry, the doctor will see you soon.” Can you think of any more sentences using contractions?
