    I am & Am

    Hello,

    What is the difference between "I am" & "Am?"

    I mean, when do we use "I am" & "Am?"

    Please help.

    Hi 2010

    Without a few examples of typical sentences/situations where you appear to have problems, it's difficult to answer such an open question.

    Anytime you might use a "telegraphic" style of writing (like a hasitly written note or a text message), you might find "Am"


    Am at store - call cell if you need anything.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    So, what I understand is, we do not use "Am" in business/professional writing?

    Hi 2010

    No!

    As Barb_D says: "in a hastily written note or a text message" only.
