    Red face Belonging?

    Hi, I have a querie that you may be able to help with. I want to call my org Vis-a-Vis. If something belonged to Vis-a-Vis e.g their confidentiality policy, would you write is Vis-a-Vis's or Vis-a-Vis' ??? Or perhaps another way? Also the little dash over the a in Vis-a-Vis slanting down from left to right - what is it called? Thanks ever so, E

    These days it's fashionable to omit s. For example, and from a site on Plural and Possessive, Words ending with s, z or x generally omit the "s."

    About the grave accent (pronounced [graev], ae as in apple, read more here, Vis--vis

    Does that help?
