Basic English Usage
The possessive case of a noun or pronoun indicates ownership or possession.

Pronouns such as his, her, its, my, mine, your, yours, their, theirs, our, and

ours are all possessive case words.

Here are several rules for the possessive case.

A. Most singular nouns form their possessive by adding an apostrophe

and an s. (the baboons food; the girls sweater; Marxs teachings; Burnss

poetic lines; Dickenss characters)

B. To form the possessive of a singular noun that ends with an s sound,

take one of two actions.

   1. If a name of two or more syllables ends in an eez sound, the possessive

is formed without an additional s. (Ulysses friends; Archimedes


   2. Add an apostrophe and an s if the word would not be difficult to

pronounce. (dresss cost; quartzs essence)

C. Add only an apostrophe to form the possessive of a plural noun that

ends in s. (the boys gymnasium; the Murphys home)

D. If a plural noun does not end in s, add an apostrophe and an s. (the

mens department; the mices hiding spots)

E. Use the possessive form for only the last name in compound nouns for

organizations, literary titles, businesses, and relatives. If owned separately,

use the possessive for both names.

Toms and Petes reputations (separate reputations)

Procter and Gambles sales (combined ownership)

mother-in-laws magazines (one womans ownership)

mothers-in-laws magazines (two or more womens ownership)

F. For acronyms (words formed from the first letters of a series of words),

add an apostrophe and an s.
