for the name Odysseus, if i want to add an s at the end do i have to write apostrophe before or after the s?
Odysseus's family
or
Odysseus' family

  • English - ,

    The first one is better, yes.

  • English - ,

    Yes that's what i originally thought but my English teacher wrote this on my paper:

    If you were to need one you would write it like “Odysseus’”. When the word ends in an “s” you simply place the apostrophe after the ending “s”.

  • English - ,

    No, I'd put 's.

    I'd also put 's on any name or singular noun that ends with -s.

    James - James's
    Charles - Charles's
    Jan Jones - Jan Jones's
    etc.
