use of apostophe
I want to describe two lovers - is it two lovers, two lover's or two lovers'?
The apostrophe is not used to make a word plural, so the two people are lovers. If you are talking about something that belongs to the two lovers, then you would make the word possessive with the apostrophe.
The quaint house belongs to the two lovers.
The two lovers' house is quaint.
