What is a contracted word?

A contracted word (or contraction) is a short word created by putting two words together and dropping one or more of the letters. these letters are replaced with an apostrophe, which shows where the letters would be if the words were written in full. They are used in informal writing or direct speech.

Examples of contracted words:

  • don’t (do not)
  • didn’t (did not)
  • isn’t (is not)
  • mustn’t (must not)
  • they’re (they are)
  • I’ll (I will)

Pupils should be taught to spell by learning to spell more words with contracted forms.
