  3. 3. LODESTAR INSTITUTE Spoken & Pronunciation Course 223 Why contraction? English is a swift language. Whenever a native speaker speaks rapidly he pronounces content words strongly and structure words lightly. For this structure words have a tendency to be contracted. It’s called Contraction Example: - I am a student. In these sentence we, the non-native speakers take pause after every words but a native speaker pronounce I, am, a, together and say these three words just like one word. AvBgv (not AvB Gg G) Importance: - 1. Contraction will make your speaking natural. 2. It will bring fluency in your speaking.
