Contraction words are used in International English Language System (IELTS) and are made by shortening and combining two words. They are also shortened form of a word or group of words that omits certain letters or sounds and an apostrophe is used to show/ indicate the place of the omitted letters

Example of contraction words are:

Can’t (Can+not)

Don’t (Do+not)

These contraction words are mostly used by people in both speaking (for written dialogue), informal writing (text message) and in formal writing (academic papers, proposals etc.) and where there is space (adverts). They make writing and speech seem friendly and accessible

The most common contractions are made of verb or auxiliaries attached to other words.  

In English, contractions are used to combine words in casual speech writing by dropping one or more letters.
