ACELA1506

Understand how the grammatical category of possessives is signalled through apostrophes and how to use apostrophes with common and proper nouns

Elaborations

  • learning that in Standard Australian English regular plural nouns ending in ‘s’ form the possessive by adding just the apostrophe, for example ‘my parents' car’ (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
  • learning that in Standard Australian English for proper nouns the regular possessive form is always possible but a variant form without the second ‘s’ is sometimes found, for example ‘James’s house’ or ‘James’ house’ (Skills: Literacy, Critical and Creative Thinking)
