hadn’t have vs hadn’t :

hadn t have or hadn t

Many people throw in an extra “have” when they talkabout things that might have happened otherwise: “Ifhe hadn’t have checked inside the truck first he wouldn’thave realized that the floorboards were rusted out.”This is often rendered “hadn’t of“ and pronounced“hadn’ta.” In standard English, omit the second word:“If he hadn’t checked inside the truck. . . .”
