How do you make the last name Williams plural?

Pluralizing the name Williams, however, is more challenging because it ends with s in its singular form. Names (and all other nouns, for that matter) that end in sibilants (that is, the sounds s, sh, ch, z, and x) are made plural by the addition of es. Thus the name Williams in its plural form is Williamses.

Is it Chris’s or Chris ‘?

In other style guides, Chris takes an apostrophe and an s: Chris’s. “AP” rules that proper names such as Chris, Agnes, and Russ take only an apostrophe, like these examples: Chris’ photograph appears on page 1 of the business section. (Other style guides use Chris’s.)

How do you write Williams possessive?

First, make the noun Williams into a plural: Williamses. Then add the possessive apostrophe according to the rules that gave us “the cats’ tails.” That gives us “We had dinner at the Williamses’ house last year.”

How do you pluralize a family name?

You usually make family names plural by adding an “s” to the end. However, if the name ends in “s,” “x,” “z,” “ch,” or “sh,” you usually add an “es” instead (but there are exceptions). The plural of “mother-in-law” is “mothers-in-law.”

Is it Jones or Jones’s?

Jones = Mr. Jones’s. Some people favor adding only an apostrophe to a singular noun ending in s, but if you follow the rule, you can’t be wrong. If a plural noun does not end in an s, you must make it possessive by adding an apostrophe and an s: women’s, children’s.

Is it Alexis or Alexis’s?

There are several different style guides for writing the English language. When you follow the rules of The Associated Press Stylebook, Alexis’ is proper. With all other style guides, Alexis’s is correct.

Can you say Jones’s?

The plural of Jones is obviously not Jones or Jones’, it’s Joneses. All the English style guides insist that singular possessives are formed with -‘s and plurals with only -‘, so the possessive of Jones (singular) is Jones’s and the possessive of Joneses is Joneses’.

Is it Mr Jones or Mr Jones’s?

Jones = Mr. Jones’s. Some people favor adding only an apostrophe to a singular noun ending in s, but if you follow the rule, you can’t be wrong. If a plural noun does not end in an s, you must make it possessive by adding an apostrophe and an s: women’s, children’s.

Is it Jones’s or Jones?

Jones = Mr. Jones’s. Some people favor adding only an apostrophe to a singular noun ending in s, but if you follow the rule, you can’t be wrong. If a plural noun does not end in an s, you must make it possessive by adding an apostrophe and an s: women’s, children’s.

Do you add an S to a name that ends in s?

Actually, both ways are correct. If a proper name ends with an s, you can add just the apostrophe or an apostrophe and an s. See the examples below for an illustration of this type of possessive noun. You’re sitting in Chris’ chair.

What is the possessive form of Alexis?

According to the Chicago Manual of Style (which folks in my profession refer to as the Bible of Book Publishing), the rule is the same as any other singular possessive. You write her name with possession just like you say it: Alexis’s.

Is it Alex or Alex’s?

It’s Alex’s. The second. The dropping of the s after the apostrophe is okay, sufficient to signal singular possession, but only when the word has an s right before the apostrophe.

What is the plural of Hernandez?

If the name ends in s, z, ch, or sh, add es. That means the Davis family becomes the Davises, the French family becomes the Frenches, the Hernandez family becomes the Hernandezes, the Glaves family becomes the Glaveses.

Is is Jones’s or Jones?

What is the possessive form of Harris?

What is the possessive form of birthday of Alexis?

Is it the Smiths or the Smith’s?

The plural of Smith is Smiths. NOT Smith’s. And if for some reason the Smiths wanted to use the possessive, they would have to use the plural possessive.

Is it Dolores or Dolores’s?

For example, one would say “That is Dolores’s car,” but you would say “That is the lions’ pen.” Yes, there is a rule saying that if somebody’s name ends in ‘s’ (not sure whether it is applicable to ‘x’ too), you can use either Charles’ or Charles’s and pronounce those forms accordingly – possessive apostrophes.

Is apostrophe SA suffix?

For nouns, noun phrases, and some pronouns, the possessive is generally formed with the suffix -‘s, but in some cases just with the addition of an apostrophe to an existing s. This form is sometimes called the Saxon genitive, reflecting the suffix’s derivation from Old English or Anglo-Saxon.
