The English Genitive Apostrophe: Judgements of Errors and Implications for Teaching.
Garrett, Peter; Austin, Christopher
Language Awareness, v2 n2 p61-75 1993
The origins of the English Genitive Apostrophe (EGA) are relatively recent, and considerable variation in its use by native speakers is evident. A study of 45 undergraduates/postgraduates suggests overall that there continues to be a lack of accord between usage of and prescriptive rules for EGA. (Contains 37 references.) (Author/LB)
