Apostrophes #2

The use of apostrophes are not only restricted to combining two words together, this is due to the fact that they also outline possession. For example: sam's cat by using the apostrophe you have illustrated possession (within this scenario it shows that the cat belongs to Sam). This is useful as the sentence would not be accurate if you wrote Sam cat or even Sams cat. When illustrating possession you must place the apostrophe before the s so that you separate it from the name.

Please note that in some scenarios you do not need to add an s after the noun. For example: The parents' bedroom
