Where do I put an apostrophe on a plural possessive word that ends in "s"?
A plural noun likely already ends in an "s," so your apostrophe to make it possessive is simply added after the "s." For example:
- The Bakers' house is the big blue one on the corner.
- The tigers' usual source of water has dried up.
- The gases' odors mixed and became intoxicating.
- The witches' brooms were not where they should have been.
- The babies' beds were all soaking wet from weak diapers.
There is an odd case about words that don't change their form to make a plural. Fish for instance. 1 fish or 2 fish. The noun doesn't change. In that case, you will have to add an "s" or "es" to form the possessive. Fishes'
