    others' expriences or exprience of others

    I would like to know which one is correct. I guess both are correct but I found out I don't know grammar rules of these phrases.

    If you spell 'experiences' right they are both correct.

    I was pretty sure but why? What is the grammatical point? Can you give me some more examples? For example I don't think I am allowed to say: expriences of you.

    Re: others' expriences or exprience of others

    You can say 'We learn from others' exeriences' or 'We learn from the experiences of others'.

    You can't say 'experiences of you' but you can say 'experiences of yours'.

    'Have you learnt anything from your experiences?' 'Have you learnt anything from those experiences of yours?'
