Contemporary Christmas decorating schemes often allow the natural beauty of the tree to stand out. This tree skips the lights in favor of bright, clean lined elements, including wooden birds and balls, as well as a paper garland that mimics the modern shapes.

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 baboon’s food; the girl’s sweater; Marx’s teachings; Burns’s

poetic lines; Dickens’s 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. (dress’s cost; quartz’s 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

men’s department; the mice’s 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.

Tom’s and Pete’s reputations (separate reputations)

Procter and Gamble’s sales (combined ownership)

mother-in-law’s magazines (one woman’s ownership)

mothers-in-law’s magazines (two or more women’s ownership)

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

add an apostrophe and an s.
