Learn English – Is “That’ll” a real word


Is the contraction from that will to that’ll an actual word or not?

Best Answer

Well, that'll is not a word but a contraction.

Some dictionaries include it, some don't. That'll clearly exists, and is used to some degree. It's just a matter of whether it has been used enough to be widely understood.

An example of its usage would be in the song That'll be the day (1957) by Buddy Holly.
