    Question I have a Question

    I'm trying to find out the "correct" way to word "Olsens Fever"

    It would be a fever for BOTH of the Olsens. Someone told me it should be "Olsen Fever" but that doesn't sound right and in my opinion their logic was faulty. Thanks in advance, and i'm sorry if my grammar offends.

    haha, so if "Olsen sisters fever" would be correct, would that make "Olsens fever" correct as well?

    and yes, i am talking about the Olsen sisters

    Re: I have a Question

    The fever is generated by the Olsen Twins, so the fan gets the fever. (I think it's the title of a new album . . . not real sure )

    I want to buy the Olsen Twins Fever album.

    I want to buy the Willie Nelson album

    Re: I have a Question

    I follow your logic. I'm just wondering why, in the phrase "Olsens fever," "olsens" can't be used in lieu of "olsen twins." They seem synonymous to me.

    Then it would be:

    I want to buy the Olsen's "Fever" album.

    Re: I have a Question

    I don't think i'm explaining myself correctly.

    This is gonna be painful so bear with me. I'm probably going to mess some stuff up but i'll do my best.

    If in "olsen twins fever" "olsen twins" is describing the type of fever (fever generated by, not belonging to, the olsen twins), then why can't i say "olsens fever?" To me, the meanings of "olsens" and "olsen twins," as i'm using them, are the same. Does this make sense?


    ps. thank you for your responses thus far.
