    Red face Apostrophe question

    When do you use an apostrophe S vs. not.

    Example:

    Lordy Lordy Lontin's are forty or

    Lordy lordy Longtins' are forty

    Default Re: Apostrophe question

    Lordy, Lordy, Lontins are forty.

    If the family name is Lontin and there's more than one of them, then add -s, like this, Lontins. As for when to use apostrophe s:

    Possession
    Ex: This is John Lontin's dog. <just one Lontin>
    Ex: This is the Lontins' dog. <more than one Lontin>

    Does that help?
