She + is = she's he + is = he's It + is = it's let + us = let's <~~~~why?
Why does us have a contraction in the first place? And why is it the same one as those other ones? Let us discuss.. O_o
I just responded to a comment with this answer, but in case it is missed I will post it here too ^_^
I understand what contractions are, and their usage. I was curious as to why ~let us~ is contracted the same as the other examples listed. It does not follow the same usage as the other ~'s~ examples.. ~she/he/it is~ are used in order to describe something (a be verb) ~she is lovely~ ect. And, ~it's~ also can be possessive. However, ~let us~ is another way of saying ~to allow/do this action~ It is not a ~be~ verb and it is not possessive.. So, I was just wondering why it has a contracted form. Not, what contractions are ^_^.
