This may be simple but which one is correct for the abbreviation of the phrase "have not"
just think of the ' replacing an o,thats all.
I was thinking it was haven't, yet a lot of people spell it the other way - havn't - now I know that I'm right.
np,they probably do it on the net because a lot of people do.
more cool 'havuntu" in Irish pronunciation . now try spelling Smith and pronouncing in the form it is spelt . in Irish which I prefer it should sound like Smitt. That's how we say it and thst's how we should spell it. It's our language in Ireland and we should murder it . I like to call a person a good cunnt , you could hardly call a person a bad cunnt could ya /
Where that particular abbreviation is acceptable in speech, it is not good practice to use it writing unless you are writing dialogue.
I disagree. I write a great deal in an informal style, and contractions fit very well into such a style - don't they?
Perhaps! Though some can appear more cumbersome than others – the written word has an aesthetic as well as a literal impact.
