Why do you contract je ai to j'ai but leave tu as and not t'as ?
It seems like tu never contracts with the following verb. Are there other words that end in vowels but never contract with the next word ?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate avoir in Le Présent (present tense)"

In grammatically correct French, E is the only vowel that contracts. So je, me, te, le, etc all contract, but tu, qui, etc do not.
The only exceptions are la and si, but the latter only when it means "if" and only in front of il and ils.
