What's happened to Carol*piano?
happened to her ???
I thought has
can also be contracted to 's
...or does that only apply to it has
e.g. it's been a pleasure, it's been a long time
oh! no, I had to read your post several times to see the ambiguity in what I'd written.
You are quite right - it can be contracted in that way and in that sense. But that's not what I intended.
I wasn't meaning to correct or change what had been written.
I was using has
in its full form and with underlining to stress the question. That's all. Not sure how else I should have written it ... I guess you have to say it to be clear.
Sorry if that caused any confusion - especially to DC
(ed - no, apparently DC read my post the way I had intended - thanks DC!)
Petrat - I think the forum monster lives in my keyboard - it happens to me a lot and not just online.
