Postby Stephen » Mon Nov 01, 2004 11:44 am

Are the following contractions acceptable?
this's = this is or has
where're = where are
there're = there are
Thank you very much for your reply.

All are to be found in transcriptions of dialogue, but are (unlike e.g. it's for it is) nonstandard for general use.
