The Write Way

Daily Writing Tip

Some writers have problems with plurals and possessives. Possessives show ownership and are created with an apostrophe “s” (singular subjects) or simply an apostrophe (plural subjects), while plurals use no apostrophe. To figure out if a word is possessive, see if you can change it into an “of the” phrase. For instance, “Sarah’s car” can be changed to “the car of Sarah.” That way, we know it’s possessive and not plural.
