The differences between contractions and slangs in English???
16 Apr 14
Contractions are words formed out of two words. For example, instead of saying I am, we say, I'm. Or is not could be shortened or contracted into isn't. Slang are informal words in every language. These are words that are not usually found in a local dictionary, but are used nevertheless by people. Netizen is a good example of a slang, which is a combination of citizen and the internet, to internet citizen or simply netizen.

There are many. Words such as "ain't" and "y'all" would be contradictions, but words such as "Rogue" and "Joe" would be nicknames, but they can count as slang as well, then again, English has a lot of slang and contradictions embedded in it. Much of our language was created from it.
