Possessive Pronouns & Apostrophes
If a one syallable noun is plural do you add 's or just '
Your subject line is altogether different than your question, so I will address both.
You do not ever use an apostrophe to make a noun plural. It does not matter how many syllables the noun has. Here are some examples using words with one to five syllables.
Cat – cats
Glass - glasses
Kitchen – kitchens
Potato – potatoes
Refrigerator – refrigerators
University – universities
An apostrophe is used to make a noun possessive.
The cat’s toy
The refrigerator’s temperature
There are many possessive pronouns. They are: his, hers, its, theirs, ours, yours, and whose. Note that none of these use an apostrophe.
