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.

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.
