I am confounded by the contraction for the very slang -Whadya- as in What do you want? I propose apostrophing it thus: wha'd'ya. That does leave the ya unattended, whereas it might (or should) be wha'd'ya'.
Any thoughts on this?
Of course this could sustain prolonged discussion; I'm perhaps more interested in a publisher's perspective.
