When to add s to a word in a sentence?
The General Rule When the subject does NOT end in the letter “s,” the verb usually will. If the subject does end in the letter “s,” the verb will NOT. In other words: Add an “s” to the verb if the subject is third-person singular (he, she, it, Martha, Sam, etc.). Do not add an “s” if the subject is plural.
Do you put apostrophe S after S?
Use an apostrophe after the “s” (s’) at the end of a plural noun to show possession. It is not necessary to add another “s” to the end of a possessive plural noun. 3. If a plural noun doesn’t end in “s,” add an apostrophe + “s” to create the possessive form.
Do you do S’s or 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.
