Randal,
Your request for an example such as "will not" vs. "wont" prompted the following thoughts...

What about use warnings, carp, cluck, croak, and confess? This spans the reporting with more severe results starting with simple warning and ending with Die and backtrace (confess.)

You might relate these to should, shall, shant, will not, and wont.
