Don't Make this English Grammar Mistake! - English learning article So, you’re happily going about your English studies and feeling quite happy with the language progress you are making when you get a message from one of your native English speaker contacts that goes something like this: “Sorry. I would of spoken to you yesterday if I hadn’t been busy”. What? Unfortunately, you’ll see these phrases used more and more these days. I had an email from a police officer recently that was littered with all of the above, and I have even seen one of my daughter’s school teachers use one of the phrases in a communication. “Could of” should be “Could have”, which is itself regularly contracted to “Could’ve” - grammatically correct, if a little ugly. For example: “I could of spent more time on my homework” should be “I could have spent more time on my homework” “I would of gone to the shops but I had no money” should be “I would have gone to the shops…..” “I should of done the dishes” should be “I should have…..” Hopefully you get the idea.
