I’m silly

using " 's" instead of "is" throughout the book

Why use " 's " instead of "is?" Ex: This spelling's completely wrong (meaning the spelling is completely wrong). Is this some sort of signature? i know i am asking a dumb q but kind of stuck in my head and need to get it off. TMM Access 2007. Thanks

  • Hello MMreader,

    Thanks for your interest in Access 2007: The Missing Manual. I searched the PDF version of this title and didn't find "spelling's" anywhere in the book. O'Reilly ebooks are updated and removing this might have been part of an update.

    If you have the print book and would like the ebook you an register the book on oreilly.com and will be able to purchase the ebook for 50% off. Have a great day!

    Kind regards,

  • Hello MMreader,

    I just wanted to add to what Paul said. In the Missing Manuals, we have a conversational writing style in which we use a lot of contractions. More recently, we've decided to stop contracting the word "is," for the simple reason that a lot of people didn't like it! You won't find this construction in the Missing Manuals any more.
