If so, then this might come in handy.
This is not as easy to remember as the individual would have you believe. Watch. This is Mike's watch. The apostrophe denotes possession. So, the cat hurt it's feet" to mean the cat owns his own feet. So if you have trouble remembering that this is the one exception to an apostrophe showing possession then you are all right, otherwise you will still get it wrong.
The word "its" signifies possession, and needs no apostrophe. (Nor do these words need one: yours, his, hers, theirs, and ours.)
he needs to do one for "your" vs. "you're"
I do NOT know why this stuff is so difficult for people to grasp. It's always boggled my mind.
WOW christiaan, mine two.
Do another one for "their", "there", and "they're".
how about one for the difference between "lose" and "loose"? that one spelling mistake ALWAYS drives me batty, and u see it everywhere these days, even on closed captioning, spotted it a couple times now. now, i can understand how they might think you need the double o because of the "oooo" sound, but do you spell loser with 2 o's? no, you don't.
