English

Apostrophes will be your focus for this week!

Quick Recap

      What is an apostrophe?

Apostrophes are punctuation marks. In English we use them in two ways, to show possession and to show contraction.

Apostrophes to show possession

Apostrophes are used to tell us that something belongs to someone. For example, if you were talking about the football belonging to Ben, you would say ‘Ben’s football’.

 

Bens football

(the football that belongs to Ben)

    

There is only one of Ben, so this is called singular possession.

 

The girl’s hat                Simon’s car

 

In the example above ONE girl owns a hat and ONE Simon owns a car.

 

When a singular proper noun ends in 's' (James, Jess etc), you can either just add an apostrophe (‘) or apostrophe ‘s’ (‘s).

 

Jamess coat          Jamescoat

 

If there are two or more people owning something, an apostrophe is needed to show plural possession.

In this case the apostrophe goes after the plural owners, so if a group of girls own a hat and you want to talk about all these hats, you would say:

     the girls hats

     If a group of boys own a car and you would say:

     the boys car

Apostrophes to show contraction

If we put two words together and miss out some letters, we need to add an apostrophe where the missing letters are. For example: ‘do not’ would change to ‘don’t’, the contracted form.

I am- I’m                                 I would- I’d

do not- don’t                           we would- we’d

cannot- can’t
