Level 11-5

Contractions with will, would, have, and had

I'll, we'll, you'll, I'd, she'd, we've, you've, he'd, they've, it'll

This is our third (of four) contraction levels, and this time we'll work on contractions where the second word is will, would, have, or had.

The general rule for these contractions is that the first word remains unchanged, and the second word changes as follows: will becomes 'll, would becomes 'd, have becomes 've, and had becomes 'd. All ten words in this level follow those patterns.

Note that contractions that begin with the word I (not just the letter I) must be capitalized -- as in I'll or I'd.
