You always make me self-conscious when you talk about grammar. I always feel like you're directing it at me and I go and look at my latest post just to see. :)
You will soon learn that there are much more important things to worry about than other people's grammer. Hmmmm, less than 3 months.
I am almost positive that I make every mistake you blog about. Grammar is that hard for me, not my strong point! So I hope you still like me even though when it comes to grammar and spelling I am complete moron!
Here's my question, though, what do you do if it is a proper noun that's always plural such as United States? United States' natural resources? United States's? Which is correct?
Oh, I like Paige's question. I always thought it was Dennis' to show possesion when it ended in an s. Did the rule change or was I always wrong?? I gotta look up my English rules from high school......
Pretty sure one of my recent posts prompted this. I'm not even embarassed. Dallas' looks a lot less awkward than Dallas's -- so I will not stop.
for hell sake's people! get it together before we smother you with apostrophe-shaped pillows!
actually, this grammar you wrote is wrong.
No, you're completely right according to Chicago style (maybe APA or AMA are different, I didn't check). And I like your suggestion on the United States situation. I mean, it IS plural so I guess it should follow the same rules. It just seems so odd to me.
