So, when did I'd've become a word? I keep seeing it in new books I read, arcs and such.
I just looked it up and it isn't in my Oxford Dictionary. I don't even speak this way, I would say I'd have.
When do we draw the line at how many words we can combine in a contraction. I thought the rule was two! Are there no rules anymore??
What about this "I would have not had that extra piece of pie". Is is now OK to say I'd'ven't'd that extra piece of pie. ??
I'd've, sheesh, that word bugs me!
OK, I've just googled it and it seems I'd've is urban slang. I have to say that bugs me even more. Books are being written in urban slang now?!
