Still have scars on my knuckles from the nuns cracking yard stick across them.
Yes way back then if you wrote contraction's yes why yes that would happen. So if i start to write one there is a hesitation.
My wife had her last contraction 37 years ago and I have forbidden ever revisiting that.
Hmmm...I used to study the French language pretty seriously. I seem to recall a good many apostrophes floating around in there.
What I see is many people using your for you're, and could of, should of, would of, for could've, should've, would've. I know that's what they sound like when we say them, but you should still know the difference. Didn't anyone pass high school English? And, while were talking about it, what's with the silent L?
Where did you learn to speak Engish?
What's your point?
They do other stuff. Umlauts and doubling consonants or vowels. Germans just jam a bunch of words together. I kinda like it, but it is a lot of syllables in many cases.just plow through the apostrophes. theyre totally unnecessary. the meaning is understood unambiguously.
other languages dont do that dumb stuff with the contractions.
