of and ′ve
Which one should I choose?
The first thing to know is that:
of = preposition
′ve = verb
(a shortened form of have, typical in informal speech)
So, think about the context … look at the words that come before and after the of or the ′ve , and then decide whether you need to use a verb or a preposition …
The sentences below are examples of non-standard usage. Can you explain why?
He was tired
‘ve always being last.
