Contractions

In grammar, contractions are words made by shortening or combining two or more words. (It’s also known as long form: I am, and short form: I’m.) The most common use of contractions in combination with pronouns are when using be, will, would, have, and had. Contractions are most commonly used in speaking, and informal writing. However, keep in mind that when writing academically (for example essays for university), it’s often frowned upon to use contractions. Commonly used affirmative and negative contractions for pronouns:
