Abbreviations are shortened forms of words or phrases, often consisting of the first letter of each word. For example, “USA” is an abbreviation for “United States of America”.

Contractions are shortened forms of words created by combining two words and replacing one or more letters with an apostrophe. For example, “don’t” is a contraction of “do not”.

Both abbreviations and contractions are commonly used in written and spoken language to save time and space. However, it is important to use them appropriately and in the correct context to avoid confusion or misunderstandings.
