Anonymous:Please advise where the apostrophe "s" should be for name Gladys... i.e. Gladys's sweater or Gladys' sweater. I have looked at this for so long that neither is making sense right now.
Thank you so much! Kalli
Anonymous:Thank you Paco! I appreciate the help.
Cheers - Kalli
How do you pronounce "s" in "Gladys"? Is it "S" or "Z"? I thought it would be "Z". If it is "S", we should say "Gladys's", but if it is "Z", either versions are OK according to grammarians.
Paco2004HiIt's pronounced as an "s".
Thethenothere123I see! So it should be "Gladys's" just as we say "Ross's".Paco2004HiIt's pronounced as an "s".
Anonymous:Either is acceptable in today's society. For a full insight into this issue, look up Apostrophe in Wikipedia.
Anonymous:My name is "Nafees" so I faced that dilemma before. I use "Nafees's car" and pronounce it "Nafees-es car".
I forgot which websites I looked at before deciding that was the correct way to go about it.
People are waiting to help.
