Someone told me that "A clock" or "a watch" was the contracted form of the other words or expressions. Is it right or wrong? If it is right, what word or expression it is.
Plaese discuss on this!
I need your help.
Hello TallSM. I wouldn't call either clock or watch a 'contracted' form of anything. They might be 'abbreviated forms' of, e.g. alarm-clock and stop-watch.
Yes, QD, o'clock is a contraction of of the clock
