Pesky Apostrophe's-- In the Spirit Of the Aforementioned Video
Has anyone else noticed that many individual's wield apostrophe's carelessly? When writing about Eddies car, people just don't know that because the car belong's to Eddie, Eddie is awarded an apostrophe preceding the 's'! Peer reviewing paper's in a 300 level class is disheartening in this regard, due to the constant smudging of the distinction between possessive and plural. I just cant' read any more papers which do'nt know where to put the apostrophe in a contraction, either. Misuse of apostrophe's has stripped the beauty from the English language, making they're appearance in inopportune places, along with incorrect form's of "their". There correct usage has tragically become rarer, making college paper's painful to red.
