Apostrophes

1. Possession—One Owner

To show that something belongs to someone, use an apostrophe and the letter s

 

This is Marc's room. (The room belongs to Marc.)

2. Possession—More than One Owner

To show that something belongs to two or more people, use just an apostrophe.

(However, if the plural form of the word does not end in s, you will need to add an apostrope and the letter s)

 

This is the kids' room. (This room belongs to the kids.) This is the children's room. (This room belongs to the children.)

3. Contractions

To show that two words have been combined and letters have been left out, put an apostrophe where the letters were removed.

We'll (We + will) be there in 10 minutes.
