"Apostrophe Rules: Easy Guide to Different Uses

Apostrophes (') can be confusing, even for native English speakers. However, they aren't difficult to master if you can remember a few apostrophe rules. Learn the different apostrophe rules for creating possessives and contractions.

Apostrophe Rules for Possessives

It would be difficult for possessives to exist without apostrophes. Let's take a look at three different uses of the possessive apostrophe.

1. Use an apostrophe +"s" ('s) to show that one person/thing owns or is a member of something.

Amy's ballet class
Lisa's car
Robert's car

Style guides vary when it comes to a name that ends in an "s." Even if the name ends in "s," it's still correct to add another "'s" to create the possessive form. It's also acceptable to add only an apostrophe to the end of singular nouns that end in "s" to make them possessive.

In this case, you can show possession for Ross in either of two ways:

Ross' room
Ross's sports team

2. Use an apostrophe after the "s" (s') at the end of a plural noun to show possession.

the parents' bedroom
the Smiths' lives

It is not necessary to add another "s" to the end of a possessive plural noun.

3. If a plural noun doesn't end in "s," add an apostrophe + "s" to create the possessive form.

the children's rooms
the tuna's beds

Remember, a possessive noun needs an apostrophe and an "s" at the end. If there's already an "s" there, you can just add the apostrophe. If there's no "s," you have to add both — first the apostrophe, and then the "s."
