  1. LOL. Here’s an apostrophe-related question that i’m guessing someone here might be able to answer: the spellchecker on my version of Open Office doesn’t recognise “Jones’s” and “James’s” as valid words (despite recognising “Jones” and “James”).

    What is the correct use of the apostrophe for names ending in S? I always thought “Jones’s” was right if you were referring to *one* Jones, as in “Indiana Jones’s whip”, whereas it would be Jones’ (or Joneses’?) if it was referring to the Jones family.

    Is Open Office wrong?

  2. LMAO!!!

    Shiva: Either way is correct (with or without the extra ‘S’), but I’m guessing OpenOffice is opting for the more commonly used version without the extra letter.

  3. shiva – officially it's up to the person whose name is being made possessive. my name ends in S and i prefer to add the additional apostrophe-S.

    Jones -> Jones's

    Joneses -> Joneses'
