I was thinking…

Can Not = Can’t.

The ‘ takes place of the o, the extra n is removed.

Should Not = Shouldn’t. Again, the ‘ takes place of the o, no letters are removed.

Will Not= Won’t. Why?? What does the contraction stand for?? You wouldn’t say “Wo not..

Why isn’t it Wiln’t?? You also wouldn’t say “Why does not this make sense?” So why can you say “Why doesn’t this make sense” if “does not” & “doesn’t” mean the same thing??

English is stupid.
