For present tense (declarative) of lexical verbs (to be) we have contractions for all pronouns:
- (I am = I’m. You are = you’re. He is = he’s. She is = she’s. It is = it’s. We are = we’re. They are = they’re.).
The same is for the future tense:
- (I'll, you'll, he'll, she'll, it'll, we'll they'll).
My question is about the past tense (declaratives) of lexical verbs (was and were). Do we have contractions for them? If we do, what are they? and If not, why? Using google I didn't find a clear answer to my question.
