POSSESSIVES : NOUNS

 

We use a noun with ’s with a singular noun to show possession:

We are having a party at Andy’s house.
Michael drove his brother’s car.

We use s’ with a plural noun ending in -s:

This is my parents’ house.
Those are ladies’ shoes.

But we use ’s with other plural nouns:

These are men’s shoes.
Children’s clothes are very expensive.

We can use a possessive instead of a noun phrase to avoid repeating words:

Is that Andy’s car?   No, it’s Ani’s [car]. > No, it’s Ani’s.
Whose coat is this?   It’s my brother’s [coat]. > It’s my brother’s.
