(The Blogger people came in and removed the photo I posted: A Target sign reading, "22.99 Mossimo TROUSER'S". Wow big brother is watching!)
Thi's really annoy's me. 'since when doe's an anything ending in an S have an apostrophe? I's thi's happening becau'se we're outsourcing our sign's to Ch'i'n'a?
Here's (here is) when to use the punctuation in question.
- To indicate the contraction of two words.
here is = here's. We will = we'll. You are = you're
- Or possession:
Susan's pet peeve. The pet peeve that Susan possesses.
Jesus' blood. The blood that belongs to Jesus.
- DO NOT USE on Plurals. Pants. Trousers. Idiots who make signs
And now a moment of silence to remember why we are here. Forget crime, poverty and Justin Timberlake. We're here to make grammar waymobetta.
