I came across this while browsing through the papers during a break - and thought it might be of interest to people here:

Though I really have no idea if this is the best place to post it. If not, then I apologise.

Happy reading!

good read Feb 17, 2010

Thanks Caryl, that was a good read. I'd never heard about the rule on apostrophes after an "s" depending on the way you want the word to sound. How interesting!

Yes, I was rather taken by the 'how you want it to sound' thing as well!
