Language & Grammar VIII: Possessives#

We use the possessive form of a singular or plural noun to highlight ownership. We use the letter s as part of the usage, where it provides an immediate context. If you would like to form a single possessive, add an apostrophe-s. Some general guidelines for the usage are:

  • Avoid using apostrophes with possessive pronouns.

  • Avoid using the possessive form of an entity to denote the projects or products in the line (example: Moja global’s FLINT should be avoided).

  • Plurals ending with s won’t need an additional s, and you can add an apostrophe.

  • Always prefer an alternate construct if it provides a better context to the readers than a possessive form.
