Mammoth Memory


(’) – shaped like a comma, indicates possession or missing letters

There are only two types of apostrophe:

1.  Apostrophe that shows possession (Fred’s house).

2.  Apostrophe that shows omission (didn’t).

An apostrophe displays possession 

A post trophy (apostrophe) is the way my cat acts. She looks like a comma high up in the sky.

Apostrophe's are written high up

She looks like she possesses the post (possession) when she sits there. (Apostrophe indicates possession).

Apostrophe's indicate a letter is missing

When the cat isn’t there, it feels like something is missing. (Apostrophe indicates missing letter).
