Rules for Use of Lower-Sign Contractions
- May never be in contact with any letter, word, contraction, or punctuation.
- May be preceded by composition signs.
|(was) (sh)e at (the) (part)y?
||(In) (the) (right) side, pl(ea)se!
||(Enough) is (en)(ou)(gh).
||(Be) (good) (enough) (to)(sh)(ow) h(er) in.
||(Were) (you) (there)?
||(The)y w(er)(en)'t (there), we w(er)e.
- Any number of lower-sign contractions and punctuation signs may follow one another without a space provided that one of them is in contact with a character containing dot 1 or dot 4.
- When two or more unspaced lower-sign contractions would follow one another and not be in contact with an upper sign, the last lower-sign contraction must not be used. the italic sign is not considered an upper sign.
