Las contracciones en inglés

Las contracciones son dos palabras en inglés que se pueden escribir juntas, unidas por un apóstrofe ('). No existen en español.

El uso de las contracciones es muy habitual en el inglés, al grado de que hay algunas palabras que rara vez se ven escritas separadas (por ejemplo, don't o let's). Se usan en el lenguaje coloquial e informal, por eso normalmente la gente habla usando las contracciones pero escriben las palabras por separado si quieren dar formalidad a su texto.

cambiar Uno de los verbos que se pueden contraer es precisamente el verbo to be, precedido por un pronombre. Hay tres posibles contracciones: am se convierte en ‘m, is en ‘s y are en ‘re.


EJEMPLO 1

I’m blonde. ---> (Yo soy rubia.)
