Apostrophes

Apostrophe to show plurals

This is an area that sparks some debate, as rules are changing over time. It is, however, accepted, that an apostrophe is used to show:

  • the plurals of single letters: You must mind your p’s and q’s.
  • abbreviations that have letters divided by full stops: three Ph.D.’s, two B.A.’s
