    What is the singular possessive of FERN.. and WHY?

  • Grammar -

    The singular possessive of most words is

    's

    fern's fronds
    friend's house
    boy's room

  • Grammar -

    So if it's PLURAL, then it's FERNS. If it's PlURAL POSSESSIVE, then is it stil the same with the singular but in a different way?

  • Grammar -

    Yes, the plural of fern is ferns.

    Most plural nouns add the apostrophe after the s.

    Singular: fern
    Plural: ferns
    Singular possessive: fern's
    Plural possessive: ferns'

    I have one fern in a pot. The fern's pot is too small.

    I have several ferns growing in my yard. The ferns' fronds have started to wilt.

  • Grammar -

    Ok. So for plural possessive you put the comma after the S. Why is that?

  • Grammar -

    Ok, sorry Ms.Sue, i didn't read you're sentence completely. Thanks Ms.Sue! :)

    You're welcome, Losa.
