I’ve just followed this link in Kati Sule’s Language and words in the news. There are some pretty funny ones in there, but I have to admit to finding apostrophes a bit tricky myself. My own worst fear is whether and where to stick an apostrophe on a word that ends in ‘s’, like students. I remember once writing the student’s’ books were expensive, just to cover all my bases!
Fortunately, I’ve found several excellent sites that explain the proper use of apostrophes. Here are just a few: Grammar Girl, About.com and the BBC. What are your scariest apostrophe scenarios? Confession time!Email this Post
