Would've or would of

Ok so like I learnt English because I've lived in Ireland. And I learnt some grammar and all there (ew grammar). So I always thought it's would've, as in would have.

But then I go to the internet. I have seen /SO/ many people saying would of, and it used to drive me mad because I was pretty sure it was would've. Now I'm not so sure anymore, is would of correct?

Idk guys help me out here :p

I mean-
“Would’ve” does mean would have and would of

As far as I know, it's "would've". I believe "would of" is just urban language.
I ageee too

Would've is grammatically correct, it is a contraction of "would have." "Would of" is definitely not grammatically correct, it is more of a colloquialism, a way of writing the way you say it. Although I can't say I personally use "Would of."

Grammatically speaking, 'Would have' is the correct phrase when writing. Would of is an incorrect habit of spoken english.
