More Apostrophe Situations

Here are more situations involving the use of the apostrophe. Review them,

and incorporate them into your writing.

  • Use an apostrophe in contractions (words that combine two words
    into one).

    had not = hadnít were not = werenít you would = youíd
    would not = wouldnít I will = Iíll was not = wasnít

  • Form the plural of a lowercase letter by placing an ís after the letter.

    There are three aís in that word.
    Mind your pís and qís.

    You do not have to add an apostrophe to form the plural of capitalized letters, numbers, or symbols.

    We counted three Ts in that paragraph. (capitalized letters)
    How many 8s (or eights) are in that column? (numbers)
    Earl loves to use $s (or dollar signs) in his writing. (symbols)

  • Use an apostrophe to show where the letter(s) is left out in a word
    or number.

    The Class of í18 = The Class of 2018
    Letís = Let us Gregoryís = Gregory is or Gregory has

  • Use an apostrophe to form the plural of an abbreviation that ends with
    a period.

    B.A.ís (or BAs) = Bachelors of Arts
    M.A.ís (or MAs) = Masters of Arts
    PhD.ís (or PhDs) = Doctors of Philosophy
    P.A.ís (or PAs) = Physicians Assistants

  • Use an apostrophe to form the plural of an abbreviation that is
    not followed by a period. It is also acceptable to write the plural
    without the period.

    How many CDís (or CDs) do you own?
    How many different LSATís (or LSATs) has Bertha taken?
