Possessive Nouns
Saturday, 19 September 2015 on

Possessive nouns are used to indicate ownership.

Possessive nouns usually are formed by adding an apostrophe (') and s.
  • John's book
  • Kerry's car
  • Grandma's mirror
When a noun is plural and ends in s, just add an apostrophe (').
  • The kids' toys
  • My parents' house
  • The teachers' lounge
If two people own one thing, add the apostrophe and s to the second person only.

  • John and Mary's new house
  • David and Sue's wedding
  • Tom and Doug's car
If two people own separate things, add the apostrophe and s for each person.

  • Susan's and Beth's books
  • Jean's and Dan's pants
  • Ben's and Jim's offices
