    Is O’Clock spelled out or contracted in the title “Four O’Clock”?

    Thank you!

    Usage of contractions and short-forms can be very confusing.
    Lesson 11 in the Literary Braille Instruction Manual covers Short-Form words in great detail.
    There are no special rules governing the usage of the short-form for O’Clock.
    It does not matter whether it appears in a title or the body of the text. It’s brailled the same way.

    RULE XVI. 47.b.
    Note: Short-form words which are common words are not to be considered as proper names
