2 Possessives

3 A possessive noun shows possession of one noun by another. Example: The boy’s book The word “dog’s” is the possessive noun. It tells you that the dog possesses the collar. To create a possessive form from a singular noun, add an apostrophe plus s (’s) to the end of the noun. The word “boy’s” is the possessive noun. It tells you that the noun “book” belongs to the boy. Example: The dog’s collar

4 The dogs bowl is red. The dogs’ bowl is red. The dog’s bowl is red. Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly? Assume that there is only ONE dog.

5 cat’s ball rolled Which of the words in this sentence is the possessive noun? The cat’s ball rolled.

6 If you formed the plural by adding an “s” on the end of the word, you add only an apostrophe (’) after the final “s.” When the possessive noun is plural (more than one), the rule is different. Example: The boys’ basketball Example: The kids’ carousel If two or more boys share a basketball, then you form the possessive by adding the apostrophe to the end of the plural “boys.” If two or more kids share a carousel, then you form the possessive by adding the apostrophe to the end of the plural “kids.”

7 The athletes’ ball went out of bounds. The athletes’s ball went out of bounds. Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly? Assume that there are several athletes. The athlete’s ball went out of bounds.

8 If the plural noun is an “irregular plural,” use the same convention as for a singular noun. Form the possessive of an irregular plural noun by adding apostrophe plus s (’s). Example: The children’s marbles Example: Women’s clothing “Children” is a plural noun, but you form the possessive by adding ’s. “Women” is also a plural noun. You form this possessive by adding ’s also.

9 The geese’s goslings were the color of new grass. The geeses goslings were the color of new grass. The geeses’ goslings were the color of new grass. Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly?

10 The ibises feathers were damaged. The ibis’s feathers were damaged. The ibis’ feathers were damaged. Which sentence uses a possessive noun correctly?
