Apostrophe Use: Contractions and Omissions
A contraction is actually a shortened way of a word (or group of ideas) that omits certain characters or looks. Inside of a contraction, an apostrophe presents skipping words. The most typical contractions are made up of verbs, auxiliaries, or modals mounted on simple terms: He would=He’d. I have got=I’ve. They may be=They’re. You are unable to=You can’t.
Some freelance writers use more uncommon contractions when they wish to symbolize a certain form of talk.
