If I say: You are not Julie, what is the correct contraction?

  • You're not Julie
  • You aren't Julie

  • Please clarify why you think only one of those is correct. Commented May 24, 2020 at 13:20
  • Sorry, I don't think that only one is correct, I thought there was only one way to do contraction

You are not Julie.

= You're not Julie.

= You aren't Julie.

Both types of contraction are okay.

  • You might mention that with the verb to be there are two possibilities in the present tenses.....
