In class we had to write a sentence using possession correctly. After that, he had a few students write up example on the board, and he reviewed them with the class. It was fine except..two sentences weren’t even using possessive nouns in them. AND HE DIDNT NOTICE IT. NOBODY SEEMED TO HAVE NOTICED.
One of the sentences were like this:
The chipmunks’ stole the candy.
WHERE IN THAT SENTENCE IS A POSSESSIVE NOUN. WHERE. HUH.
They did the apostrophe correctly– if it was a possessive noun. But this isn’t.
I decided to not say anything. x:
