POSSESSIVE NOUNS

A possessive noun shows who or what owns something. A possessive noun can either be singular or plural. A singular possessive noun shows that one person, place, or thing has or owns something. To make a singular noun show possession, add an apostrophe and s (‘s).

Example: the feathers of the chick – the chick’s feathers the hat that belongs to the man – the man’s hat Other examples: the child’s toy

Mark’s bike

The fish’s fins

The horse’s tail

Using possessive nouns is shorter and better than other ways of showing possession.

Example:

LONGER: The dog belonging to Papa is barking.

BETTER: Papa’s dog is barking.
