Possessive case of a noun is used to show ownership ( Jordan's car, my sister's house) or other close relationship ( the president's friends, the university's position). For singular nouns, add ’s, even if the noun ends in an -s or -z sound: dog's, house's, Wes's, Jesus's, Denver's, Keats's. For most plural possessive nouns, add an apostrophe alone: several months' bills, many Romanians' apartments, the encyclopedias' differences. If a plural noun doesn't end in -s, add -'s, just as you would with a singular noun: women's issues, mice's tails.
