This wasn’t the first time when I met the contraction e’en. (And also e’er)
thefreedictionary says that it is used
[size=134]1[/size] for evening :shock:
2 for even (as I saw it)
Could you give some comments about the contractions?
Where are they (:)) come from and where are they acceptable to be used?
Just purely poetic?
this is e’en so - what does the phrase mean? ‘It is true’ or something else and more?
