Best Seller In The Upper Left
Turn the page of any catalog and the first thing you look at is the upper left hand corner of the spread. Thats where to place your best seller, your bread and butter, right?
Well, what if your best seller is a visual dog? What if, for instance, your mainstay is black shoes? Kill the rule, raise another flag.
Put a pair of wild socks in the upper left for stopping power and direct your reader to the old tried and true elsewhere on the spread.
Advanced English Grammar Test
[singular noun + 's] : my father[s]car We sometimes just add an apostrophe (') to a singular noun ending in -s: Socrates' ideas. But's is more common: Charles's wife.
[plural noun + '] : my parent[s] house
[irregular plural + 's] : the children [s] room
We can add's to a whole phrase: the man next door's wife.
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.
Have you met Jack's new girl-friend? We can use the possessive without a following noun.
(NOT . . . the Jack's new girl-friend?)
For the structure a friend of John's etc,
'Whose is that?' Peter's '
We often talk about shops and people's houses in this way.
Alice is at the hairdresser's
We had a nice time at John and Susan's last night.
