comment “Above”/“below” before/after a noun
Presumably "See the reference above/below." is short for "See the reference above/below this statement." i.e. using "above"/"below" as prepositions.

comment Difference between “I haven't” and “I've not” etc
+1 for the good references, thanks! Though I've generally observed that "I haven't" is much more common than "I've not", one exception is "You're not going to fool me" as in my last example. Is it to stress the "not", I wonder?

Thanks, Cameron. I wasn't aware of the US non-auxiliary function difference. I edited my question to give some context examples. In each example, which form is preferred?

Thanks, John. I was unaware of the UK/US difference. I've added some examples of context to the question. Does your observation still hold?
