Transcript of Possessive 's
We very often use possessive 's with names
This is Mary's car.
Where is Ram's telephone?
Who took Anthony's pen?
I like Tara's hair.
When a name ends in s, we just add the apostrophe ':
This is Luis
That is Charlies
When we want to show that something belongs to somebody or something, we usually add 's to a singular noun and an apostrophe ' to a plural noun
the boy's ball (one boy)
the boys' ball (two or more boys)
Some nouns have irregular plural forms without s (man > men). To show possession, we usually add 's to the plural form of these nouns
singular noun plural noun
my child's dog my children's dog
the man's work the men's work
the mouse's cage the mice's cage
a person's clothes people's clothes
