English Phrases
Basic English Usage
  • Spelling
      [singular noun + 's] : my father[s]car
      [plural noun + '] : my parent[s] house
      [irregular plural + 's] : the children [s] room
    We sometimes just add an apostrophe (') to a singular noun ending in -s: Socrates' ideas. But's is more common: Charles's wife.
    We can add's to a whole phrase: the man next door's wife.
  • Pronunciation
      The ending 's is pronounced just like a plural ending . The apostrophe (') in a form like parents' does not change the pronunciation at all.
  • Possessives are not usually used together with other determiners.
    The car that is John's is John's car, not the John's car.

      (NOT . . . the Jack's new girl-friend?)
      For the structure a friend of John's etc,
  • We can use the possessive without a following noun.
      'Whose is that?' Peter's '
