Apostrophes or Apostrophe’s

Filed Under (General News) by on 07-11-2017 and tagged , ,

Can you help all the children in Hawthorn – and all the others out there in internet world – by writing an amazing explanation of when to use an apostrophe for possession.

Can you come up with a rule?

Why is it different from adding an -s for a plural?

Exsample That is Tvisha’s bag.You don’t use an apostrophes in some words because those words already have a meaning.

    Apostrophes
    Apostrophes are used to show that it belongs to someone. Example: Charis took Prachi’s bag to give to her. They show the possetion of the person. Example: The chicken’s eggs get collected everyday. In this sentence the word eggs does not have an apostrophe because it is someone’s and is not the person who has something. Prachi’s pet dog’s chased Charis’s pet gerbil. In this sentence there is an apostrophe that is not meant to be there. This is the one in dogs. It is spelt like this, dog’s, but it is meant to be spelt like this, dogs.

    You use a Apostrophe when it is someones thing so for example Tom’s clothes are in the closet. You use it for an s but not for every s you use it when it is theirs.

    Apostrophes are used to shorten words.Example:Charis snached Sinju’s art supplies.They showed the position of the person’s name.Example:Prachi went to the strawberry farm and got lots of strawberrys.In this sentence there was no apostrophes. Strawberrys might look like it needs a apostrophes but it dosen’t need a apostrophes because it is not someones property and strawberrys are furits.

    Apostrophes is something that is above its like a comma and a possession is something that belongs to something. Ex- I played with Charis’s ball.In the sentence the ball is something that belongs to Charis so that is why I used apostrophe.Ex- I was playing with Otiz’s thing’s.In the sentence things have a apostrophes but it shouldn’t have it.
