Contractions definition: We use contractions (I’m, we’re) in everyday speech and informal writing. Contractions, which are sometimes called “short forms”, commonly combine a pronoun or noun and a verb, or a verb and not, in a shorter form. Contractions are usually not appropriate in formal writing.
