    And don't get me started on the poor apostrophe!
    The Apostrophe Protection Society was started in 2001 by John Richards, now its Chairman, with the specific aim of preserving the correct use of this currently much abused punctuation mark in all forms of text written in the English language.
    [COLOR=#000066]The rules concerning the use of apostrophes in written English are very simple:[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=#666666]1. They are used to denote a missing letter or letters, for example:[/COLOR]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]I can't instead of I cannot[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]I don't instead of I do not[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]it's instead of it is[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][COLOR=#666666]2. They are used to denote possession, for example:[/COLOR][/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]the dog's bone[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]the company's logo[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]Jones's bakery (butJoneses' bakery if owned by more than one Jones)[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]... but please note that the possessive form of it does not take an apostrophe any more than ours, yours or hers do[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]the bone is in its mouth[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][COLOR=#666666]... however, if there are two or more dogs, companies or Joneses in our example, the apostrophe comes after the 's':[/COLOR][/FONT]

    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]the dogs' bones[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]the companies' logos[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]Joneses' bakeries[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica][COLOR=#666666]3. Apostrophes are [COLOR=#000000]NEVER[/COLOR] ever used to denote plurals! Common examples of such abuse (all seen in real life!) are:[/COLOR][/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]Banana's for sale which of course should read Bananas for sale[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]Menu's printed to order which should read Menus printed to order[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]MOT's at this garage which should read MOTs at this garage[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]1000's of bargains here! which should read 1000s of bargains here![/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]New CD's just in! which should read New CDs just in![/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]Buy your Xmas tree's here! which should read Buy your Xmas trees here![/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]Note: Special care must be taken over the use of your and you're as they sound the same but are used quite differently:[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]your is possessive as in this is your pen[/FONT]
    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Arial, Helvetica]you're is short for you are as in you're coming over to my house[/FONT]
