English is full of reductions. We write “going to” but we say “gonna” for example.

The conjunction “and” is often reduced to an /n/ sound. So “hot and cold” becomes “hot ’n’ cold” and so on. Here are ten sentences to practice with.

These phrases are sometimes called “fixed” and phrases. Ask any American to finish these:

“Rock and _____.”

“Bright and ______.”

“Pros and ______.”

Yes, they are effectively collocations.

1. She often listens to rock and roll.

2. My grandson like to eat bread and jam.

3. “I now pronounce you man and wife.”

4. They got up bright and early.

5. She cared for her grandmother night and day.

6. He wasn’t interested in the ins and outs of local politics.

7. Professor Jones studied the rise and fall of ancient empires.

8. It was a matter of life and death.

9. I need to think about the pros and cons before I decide.

10. There’s too much hustle and bustle in a big city. I prefer living in the country.
