Not many things bother me, but this really does. So many people misuse apostrophes these days. Here are the simple rules about apostrophes… 1. Apostrophes are not to be used with plurals (in the case of plurals, adding the letter s will suffice.) 2. Apostrophes should ONLY be used for possessives and contractions.
For instance, it is okay to write the following sentence.
The Warshaks are coming over for dinner.
It is not appropriate, however, to write it this way.
The Warshak’s are coming over for dinner.
To correct the error you would simply add something that belongs to the Warshaks following the apostrophe. Like, the Warshak’s (dog, cat, spinners, bling, etc) are coming over for dinner.
I really think the misuse of apostrophes is the very destruction of society as we know it. Share this with a friend and make the world a better (smarter) place. 😉
