When making an appositive possessive, which is more advisable:
A) "He offered his son's (George) room"
B) "He offered his son George's room"
And in a case of joint possession, what is the preferred BRITISH English version from the choice below:
1) "It's ME and my wife's car"
2) "It's MY and my wife's car"
I ask this because i have read that in a case of joint possession, British English requires only the latter to be made possessive (when using proper names), such as:
"Tom and Jerry's anctics" - Tom is not possessive
Yes, but me isn't possessive, my is the possessive of I. So it's my and my wife's car. Though you could say It's our car.;-)
