DO NOT DO IT!!

OK so this is my last one on apostrophes for now and it’s quite a bossy one:

NEVER USE AN APOSTROPHE TO MAKE A PLURAL. ❌

EVER.

NEVER EVER.


🚫 DO NOT DO IT. 🚫


You know (because I have beautifully explained in my previous 2 ‘apostrophe posts’) that there are TWO reasons for using apostrophes.



Let me hear you say them……. 👂

✅ To indicate possession

✅ To indicate omission

I did NOT say 3 reasons.

❎ Do NOT use an apostrophe to make a plural:

The dogs all ran around. 🐕‍🦺🐩🐕

More than 1 dog = dogs. NO APOSTROPHE


The chips were really tasty. 🍟

NO APOSTROPHE

Hooooowever, when it comes to acronyms (e.g. CEO, CD, TV, DVD etc) SOME people in the know say it’s OK to have an apostrophe there (CD’s, TV’s etc).

I don’t like them. I don’t think they are necessary. I like to keep things simple:

CDs

TVs

CEOs

I have the training, experience and knowledge to use apostrophes correctly. I use them to help your text make sense.

If you have any doubts as to what should go where in sentence, contact me.
