I know this isn’t new territory. I know I’m bordering on a fixation. But the errant apostrophe continues to drive me nuts!
It’s at its worst on Facebook. There appears to be an entire generation that adds an apostophe to any word when it’s pluralized! The sentence, “I saw three Santas at the mall” becomes…and I can hardly type this… “three Santa’s”….argh!
The apostrophe is a condiment not an entree! It’s only brought out for contractions and to show possession and…oh forget it. It’s a losing battle. But if I’m ever found babbling something incoherent while rocking back and forth, hugging my sides crouched in a corner, what I’ll be trying to say is, ‘apostrophe’!
