    Hi! Quick question: when the word “being” is used in dialect and printed “bein'” which contraction should be used? The “be” or “in”?
    Thanks!

    Thank you for this question.
    In regards to Dialect – EBAE RULE X. 34.e states: Part-word contractions should be used rather liberally in dialect.
    In regards to contraction usage – EBAE RULE XIII. 40.b states: When two or more lower-sign contractions follow one another without being in contact with an upper sign, the final lower-sign contraction must not be used.
    Ex: comin’ [simbraille]-in'[/simbraille]
    I hope this helps
