This question already has an answer here:
"I have" can be contracted to "I've" when the "have" word is used followed by an action or experience. For example, "I have been there" can be contacted to "I've been there"
Is the same valid for the "have" word denoting possession? For example, Can "I have a pen" be contacted to "I've a pen"?
I've seen usages like "I've got a pen" for "I have got a pen" and I suppose that is correct anyway. But what about when there's no "got" ?
