The Levitating Comma! The Apostrophe!
Question: What are the three uses for apostrophes? Examples?
- Possessive form: Book of Joe = Joe’s book.
- Contractions: is + not = isn’t (Takes the place of a letter.)
- Pluralize letters and words used as words. All A’s on my report card.
“Apostrophes, 10/2.” Copy only the bold-faced, underlined part. Write the correct form of the word for each blank. You might have to pluralize and/or possessify. YOU get ONE S.
