How to use Apostrophes

Master apostrophes with this online grammar course

This online apostrophe course is part of An A to Z of Punctuation.apostrophe-online-course

Although the basic rules are straightforward, apostrophes can be tricky. Not everyone agrees on all usages and sometimes sentences with apostrophes are clumsy. Occasionally, it’s easier to rewrite a sentence to avoid using an apostrophe.

For instance:

  • Would you write 20 years experience or 20 years’ experience?
  • And would you write Frances’ report or Frances’s report?
