  5. Contractionsand Negatives • A contraction is a shortened form of two words. An apostrophe is used to show where one or more letters have been left out. • Some contractions are made by combining pronouns and verbs: I + will = I’ll; she + is = she’s.

  6. Contractionsand Negatives • Other contractions are formed by joining a verb and not: do + not = don’t; are + not = aren’t. • Won’t and can’t are formed in special ways (can + not = can’t; will + not = won’t)

  7. Contractionsand Negatives • Negatives are words that mean “no” or “not”: no, not, never, none, nothing. Contractions with n’t are negatives too. • To make a negative statement, use only one negative word.
