A blog for copyeditors and for students who want to develop proficiency in copyediting
Sumi, this is an intriguing question. Can you refer us to a page or give us an example of what you mean?
Hi Pat,I'm sorry for responding so late! While looking for an example, I think I found my answer. It appears the Guide to Grammar & Writing website doesn't take a stance or adhere to any particular style, but is inclusive of most styles. An example can be found at: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/possessives.htm regarding the use of apostrophes in possessive forms. However, we all know from taking your class that the Chicago Manual of Style's rule is to use an ‘s after most proper nouns including names ending in s; whereas other style manuals like the AP Stylebook has an altogether different rule. Thank you!
Yes, that's right. Thanks for pointing this out, Sumi :)
