Question from:
Arthur in USA

"Is "how'd" an acceptable contraction for "how did," as in "How'd you learn so much about word usage?" A co-worker told me today that "how'd" isn't a word. I can't find any references to it in dictionaries or style guides, but have always assumed it was fine to use in (informal) written English. Thanks!"
