Possessive Nouns

Possessive nouns are used to indicate ownership.

Possessive nouns usually are formed by adding an apostrophe (') and s.

  • Kerry's book
  • John's car

When a noun is plural and ends in s, just add an apostrophe (').

  • My parents' house
  • The kids' toys

If two people own one thing, add the apostrophe and s to the second person only.

  • John and Mary's new house
  • Tom and Sue's wedding

If two people own separate things, add the apostrophe and s for each person.

  • Susan's and Jim's books
  • Jean's and Dan's pants
