Contractions

When we are speaking in English, we will often connect the subject of the sentence and the first auxiliary verb by connecting them with a contraction. We usually use contractions when we are speaking or writing informally. Do not use them when speaking or writing formally.

I have beenI’ve been
We have beenWe’ve been
The cat has beenThe cat’s been
She has beenShe’s been
He has beenHe’s been
Joe has beenJoe’s been
They have beenThey’ve been
We have beenWe’ve been

Look at the following examples:

  • Joe’s been exercising this morning.
  • She’s been baking a cake today.
  • We’ve been driving since yesterday.
