Contractions in English
I would be very grateful for references to any research conducted on the frequency of contractions in English speech and writing (''he's'' instead of ''he is'', ''they've'' instead of ''they have'' etc.). I would especially like to hear about any quantitative corpus-based studies.
I will post a summary of any replies I receive.
Many thanks in advance.
