GeorgeUK Posted July 22, 2013 Report Share Posted July 22, 2013 The apostrophe and its use when describing possession of nouns is one of the most misunderstood parts of written English so I thought I would set down two simple rules for any scholars out there.when possessing a singlular noun (or one object)- the dog's tailthis is when describing one dog and his tail.for plurals:-the dogs' tailsthis is when describing tails belonging to more than one dogThere are many instances when the rule is changed but as a rule of thumb, follow this and you won't go too far wrong.
