Agreement With Nouns That Ends In S

A look at history also does not help to resolve the issue, for the correct use of the apostrophe has always been ambiguous. The word apostrophe first appeared around 1580-1590 and came from the Greek word apostrophḗ, which means “abandonment,” which makes sense, since it was first used in English to represent the missing letters in a word. But when it began to show ownership, there was never a consensus on how to do it properly, and we are now living with that legacy. As a Mexican, Sanchez MOST is definitely a “Z” sound and not an “S.” It does not rhyme with `chess`, but rhymes with the first syllable in the `pheasant` bird, i.e. `fez`. How is the name of the company, which already ends in apostrophe, pluralized, for example.B. Lowes? One could say that the “ladies” are a descrits word, or that it is a seminar for the ladies, that is, a case for one of them. Since one day is a phrasary adjective (compound moderator) describing the seminar, I would recommend the use of a hyphen. The following words are considered as individual subjects, although they end with -s: news, thesis, hypothesis, crisis, analysis, politics, physics, mathematics, economics, ethics, athletics, etc. Bob, it`s difficult because the plural of the co-operative education board is actually boards of Cooperative Educational Services. It would be better if you wrote “Orange and Sullivan Boards` Networks.” The other tricky aspect is that BOCES is really used here as an adjective and not as a possessive name. That`s why you could also write: “Orange and Sullivan BOCES Networks.” Both options would be much better than any of the options you don`t intuitively like. In your sentence, the word partner is a plural form, not possessive, so no apostrophe is necessary.

In addition, it seems that a word is missing from your sentence. Jones Real Estate Partners focuses on committed “Best of Class” management that optimizes tenant connectivity. Things can really confuse with the possessive plurals of proper names that end in s. Our Rule 4 of the Apostrophe says: “To show plural possession, make the noun in the plural first. Then immediately use the apostrophe. The name Riggins is Rigginses. To show possession, add an apostrophe. Although it may seem unpleasant, Rigginses` Rigs are correct. There is a word for the S sound that drives so many people up: sibilant. It comes from the Latin word meaning “whistle.” It can also be used to describe other letters when they make the same S sound, such as ch, sh, z and zh. These sibilant sounds throw people for a loop when they come to the end of a word, with many trying to do vocal gymnastics to avoid unpleasant owners. Would “Independents Day” be plural or singular? This day has no necessary correlation with the Fourth of July.

I wonder only whether, by definition, independents would be a group that would spell “independents” who would make them dependent on the group, or simply an assembly of “independent” written independents to designate the day one by one. No, I`m not trying to be an intelligent man. It`s just something that crossed my curious mind this morning under the influence of too much caffeine. Do you know when the individual possessive on substantives that end in `s` has changed from `s to it? I know that in the Chicago Style Manual, the change was accepted in the 15th edition (2003) and finished in the 16th edition (2010). Turabian had the change in the 7th edition 2007 (and I also believe in the 6th edition). The Gregg Reference Manual indicates that this change is complete (no other method can be used) in 2003.
