Abbreviations 缩写

When we speak and write in English, we use abbreviations.

The word because is often written as, or pronounced as: 'cause / cos / coz.

For instance, you might hear:

I take the train to work 'cause it's quicker than the bus.

When people send text messages, they might write:

I went home early cos I wasn't feeling well.

In today's Question and Answer of the Week, Rosie and Helen talk about this abbreviation and a few others!
