One of the most frequent errors made by native speakers is with the apostrophe. Apostrophes are either put in words where they are not needed, or omitted when they should be used. Is the use of the apostrophe so complicated?
The apostrophe has two basic uses- it shows that letters are missing- aren't, can't, etc, and it shows possession- John's sister. Apostrophes are not used to show that a noun is plural.
