Death Of The Apostrophe?
We’ve all done it: written a sentence and misplaced or just forgotten to use an apostrophe. Take the word “its” for example. If it has an apostrophe, "it's" is a contraction for “it is” or “it has.” Well, there’s a movement of sorts to rid the English language of the apostrophe all together. You can find out more at a site called Killtheapostrophe.com We decided to find out more from UNC Chapel Hill English Professor and Linguist Connie Eble. She says everything will be just fine if the apostrophe dies.
