Interesting topic for a video-lesson Jade, but I have serious reservations about the meaning of the possessive form ‘s.

Does the possessive form ‘S mean that something or somebody really belogs to someone? I doubt it!

The boys’ school is excellent

The idea this statement conveys -I think- is: The school the boys attend is excellent NOT that the school really belongs to them.

Chris’ girlfriend is pretty.

This last statement means that… the girfriend of Chris is pretty NOT that this person really belongs to him, I think.


P.S.Thanks for this useful video-lesson Jade.
Have a great weekend!!!

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    When we use “belong” like this, we mean in the context of the sentence. We are not talking about ownership in real life. Your examples replacing the apostrophe construction are correct. For example, we call words like "my", "his", etc. “possessive adjectives” — but you can say "my school". This is a possessive, even though you don’t OWN the school. It is a much more general relationship that depends on the context of the sentence.

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

Thank you Jade! This lesson was very useful!
Yesterday I was thinking about possessive forms because it was Women’s Day :)
Best wishes and have a nice weekend!

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Yes that’s a great example of possessive apostropes. Many native speakers get confused and make mistakes with that.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

Jade’s lesson is excellent. Thanks Jade.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

thanks ma’am
i am advance English learner and all engvid lesson i like specially your lesson. i have learned may things from engvid yhat will come my hand. it’s a fact we can’t make do without good communication skills. i am not exaggerating.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

i tried to listen twice and understand perfectly. really good lesson… ~_~

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    It’s quite good,Isnt’?

    Saturday, December 10th 2016

Thanks Jade. I could make a sense about that rule. ^^

Sunday, March 9th 2014

I’ve got 10 of 10
It seem that you have a problem with toilets hahaha, I really enjoyed your video

And by the way you’re so gorgeous

Sunday, March 9th 2014

Hi Jade,
wanted to aks, which of the following statements is correct: “Tom and my friend Franklin” or “Tom’s and my friend Franklin”

Thanks in advance, Jade!

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    I would say ‘Franklin is a friend of Tom’s and mine.’

    Monday, March 17th 2014

      hey teacher, we can say franklin is tom’s friend and mine

      Monday, March 24th 2014

      ‘Tom and my friend Franklin’ Why do you think Tom is a friend of mine?
      What does mean Tom’s?
      I know you don’t answer that question. Just think about it.
      Are you a “teacher”? “also”? Have you thought about going to the therapist?
      I’ll do it, if I were you.

      Tuesday, February 17th 2015

thank Jade for this important lesson, but i have a question about the first question in the quis:
“Have you met Lizzie before? She’s a friend of __________.”

i thought the answer was Jess because we knew she was a friend of Jess or we can say she’s Jess’s friend
please tell me where’s the point..thanks again.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    There was some confusion with this question, so it has been changed. Jess was also correct in the original version of the question that you saw. Sorry, issaf!

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

Thank you very much for this lesson. Could you explain the first question, please?
“Have you met Lizzie before? She’s a friend of __________.”

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Have you met Lizzie before?She is a friend of Jess’s.
    Explanation-Lizzie is a friend of Jess.If you completely understand the Mam’s lecture then it is bed of roses for you.
    Answer is Jess’s because Jess is belonging to Lizzie(she is friend) and not more than one so the apostrophe is before letter “S”.

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

mother in law ! what’s mean ?

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Mother in law is someone’s husband’s or wife’s mother.

    Tuesday, March 11th 2014

I don’t understand question1 :
” she’s a friend of jess”
“she’s a jess’s friend “?
can you explain more ?

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    I think you ought to watch the video again. When a name ends with -s (like Jess) you can use the apostrophe in two ways. Either you can say:
    1. Jess’ friend
    2. Jess’s friend

    Monday, March 17th 2014

I’ve got 7of 10….:(
What I did not understand?

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Some of the rules are tricky to remember. 7 out of 10 is a good score – higher than a lot of native speakers would get. 0:

    Monday, March 17th 2014

Hello Jade,first time to learn from you.I have got 8 out of 10.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

I have got 8/10.
Mam,your lesson is informative.
Thank you.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

9/10. I misunderstood the first one. She’s is a friend of Jess’s. I thought the correct was; she’s is a friend of Jess.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Both answers were actually correct. We have now adjusted the question. So you got 10/10, Jorge. Sorry for the confusion.

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

I want to know more about the answer of first question. Why “She’s is a friend of Jess” is wrong? “Of” also show the possession right?

Sunday, March 9th 2014

How to know if the name is Jame or James?
“Jess’s friend” is not the same that “friend of Jess”?

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    That’s a good point. Jame is not a name so that is how you know the name ends in -s: ‘James’

    Monday, March 17th 2014

I din’t understand the first one!

Sunday, March 9th 2014

In the question #10, it would be appreciated when you explain why the option #3 is wrong.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

thanks jade. I got it

Sunday, March 9th 2014

Hi Jade,

This is another excellent lesson, but I have a doubt. I’ve got 9 out of 10 and the first question seems to be wrong but it doesn’t make sense to me. I choose Jess while the right answer given by the web is Jess’s. Don’t you think there is an error there?

Thank a lot, I like the way you teach. Your e-mail are great, I like very much the way you write them.

Take care.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Sorry, it should be “thanks” and “e-mails”.

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

    I’m sorry, it should be “thanks” and “e-mails”.

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

    Not an error, but Jess was also a correct answer. We have changed the question to remove this problem. Sorry, Carlos.

    Sunday, March 9th 2014

      Thanks for your quick answer. But I’m still having a doubt, that sentence reminds me things like doble negative,” I don’t have no money”. Could you explain me if the sentence try to tell that she is a friend of somebody who is also a friend of Jess .

      Thanks again, you’re all a fantastic team with an excellent website.

      Sunday, March 9th 2014

        If you say FRIEND OF JESS’S, it is a “double possessive, because of the apostrophe+s and also the OF. But double possessives like this are fine in English. Double negatives are wrong.

        Monday, March 10th 2014

          Thanks again, I knew doble negatives are wrong, that’s why I though these ” double possesives” were also wrong. Clear enough, anyway I guess it’s something will not come naturally from me.

          Monday, March 10th 2014

One apostrophe signifies minutes , two apostrophes stand for seconds. What happened between 13’49” and 13’51” ?

Sunday, March 9th 2014

9 out of 10. Thanks Jade. I learned something from your lesson.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

Thank you for your lesson.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

I got 9 out of 10. Great lesson ! Thanks Jade ! Your accent is so beautiful.

Sunday, March 9th 2014

Thanks for this great lesson :) :) :)
apostrophes in English are also used to denote a missing letter or letters, for example: I can’t instead etc

Sunday, March 9th 2014

Really good, thanks a lot Jade

Sunday, March 9th 2014


Monday, March 10th 2014

I got 3 out of 10

Monday, March 10th 2014

I want some help…how can I contact to any of the teacher here…

Monday, March 10th 2014

Thank you. Now I understand what apostrophe means…. Like ownership

Monday, March 10th 2014

thank you I understand.
But I have some questions.
She’s=she is What is shortening for possession? Jame’s=?
we say Tokyo’s. But we don’t say Japan’s. I think we say japanese.
Am I correct? Please teach me.

Monday, March 10th 2014

    James is a person’s name. The name ends with -s. There is no way to shorten it.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

Thanks, Jade.
I read in Practical English Usage by Machael Swan in 386.8, that
pats: a man’s leg; a table leg
We use the ‘s structure to talk about parts of people’s and animals’ bodies.
a man’s leg an elephant’s trunk a sheep’s heart
But to talk about parts of non-living things, we usually use the noun + noun structure.
a table leg (NOT a table’s leg)
a car door (NOT USUALLY a car’s door).

Monday, March 10th 2014

    There is enough variation in use that it’s hard to talk about a rule here. It really depends on the context. Sometimes, it’s a simple as certain ways sounding “better” than others. But “better” can change, depending on what country you are in and even the age of the person you are speaking to.

    Monday, March 10th 2014

      many thanks for the explanation. thank to all the team of ENGVID. good luck

      Thursday, March 13th 2014

Thank you Jade.

Monday, March 10th 2014

Very nice, I got l0! Thanks Jade!

Monday, March 10th 2014

Morning Jade,thank for your teaching I got a 100.God bless you and your loved ones.

Monday, March 10th 2014

Dear Jade,
What is correct, “company’s presentation” or “company presentation” ? The latter sounds better to me, but I’m not sure! the presentation doesn’t BELONG to the company, so, should there be a possessive ‘s ? Thank you!

Monday, March 10th 2014

    You always have a choice. This is a question of style, not grammar. You choose which one you think sounds most appropriate for the context you are writing about.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

interesting lesson, thanks Jade !

Monday, March 10th 2014

Thank you,Jade.I’m interested to know Why your accent is different from other engvid teachers?

Monday, March 10th 2014

    Jade is from London. The other teachers are North American.

    Monday, March 10th 2014

Thank you so much for this lesson.

Monday, March 10th 2014

Hi Jade

When do I use hifen with mother-in-law/mother in law and brother-in-law/brother in law?

Monday, March 10th 2014

    You can say it either way. It’s okay.

    Monday, March 17th 2014

5/10 thanks very much Jade.

Monday, March 10th 2014

@Regino: Perhaps this one is a stupid observation, but I’ve heard before about these apostrophes like “Saxon genitive”. It is for this reason that the particular construction means “possession” while, in reality, it’s more like a sort of preposition (like in Latin language).

Monday, March 10th 2014

Thanks got 60%.

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

Hello Jade,
could you please tell me when the past tense of ‘must’ is ‘had to’ and when it is ‘must have done’ ?
thanks a lot

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

“Do you know if Mary and Susan’s boyfriend is coming?” because he is the mutual boyfriend…

Wednesday, March 19th 2014

Thanks a lot Ms. Jade.

Thursday, March 20th 2014

9 out of 10. Why is it “women’s toilet…”? Isn’t it “womens’ toilet..”? :<

Thursday, March 20th 2014

    Because “women” is already the plural form — all you need is the possessive “‘s”.

    Friday, March 21st 2014

Thanks Jade, I got 10/10 and this mean I’m a good estudent e you’re a good teacher :D

Friday, March 21st 2014

    Tuesday, April 30th 2019

Hi Jade,
I have a doubt about the pronunciation

Chris’s and Chris’ are /Kris.iz/, is that all right?
But in boys’ you don’t pronounce the possessive s.

Tuesday, March 25th 2014

Thanks teacher

Can you explain it for me please, Jade?


Monday, April 7th 2014

Hello Jude, and guys! hope you are doing well!
I just subscribed and this is the first test I took.

Saturday, April 26th 2014

Here is my questions about your lesson, please answer to me ASAP.
2. Sarah: “Do you know if _________ and ________ boyfriends are coming?”
Luke: “Mary’s boyfriend is coming but Susan’s boyfriend has to work.”
a. Marys, Susanss
b. Mary, Susan’s
c. Mary’s, Susan’s
d. Mary’s, Susan
==> I chose “b” sentence, why is it wrong?

10. _________ best friend is a worm.
a. James’
b. James
c. Jame’s
James’s is also correct, but it was not given as an option.
==> Correct answer is “a” while I chose “c”. what’s difference about 2 sentences ?

Sunday, May 4th 2014

    Hi Votuanho. in number 2, B is not correct since MARY doesn’t have ‘S .

    In number 10 the name of the person is JAMES , it has S at the end so we only use ‘ . And it should be affter s( James’). Also when a noun is plural and has S at the end we write in this way. I hope it helps. Best regards:soei

    Sunday, January 10th 2016

Great lesson ! this is a great web site to learn english, God bless you all !

Sunday, May 4th 2014

Wednesday, May 28th 2014

I got 10 correct out of 10. fascinating

Sunday, June 1st 2014

Hi Jade. Just a little doubt.
On the second white board (the one you used in the second part of the lesson), the first sentence reads
“The women’s group meet weekly”.
Shouldn’t be “The women’s group meetS weekly” ?
Thanks for any asnwer. And keep it up. Hope to see you in London soon.

Wednesday, June 4th 2014

I got 9 correct out of 10 :) Thank you

if you want to study english with me add me on skype: bruno_ferreira15

Tuesday, August 12th 2014

My score was 100%, although I was slightly confused on the last question. Why would there be an apostrophe after “James”? Sine James is singular wouldn’t there have to be an “‘s” after his name?

Thursday, August 14th 2014

I get the point, thanks Mrs. Jade

Friday, October 3rd 2014

the end of the test is th best ; good sens of humor

Tuesday, October 14th 2014

I have a problem with question no.9 which says “dining table’s leg” is the correct answer but I learned it that we never use apostrophes for non-living things so as per that rule it should be “leg of the dining table is broken”. I am confused, kindly reply. Anyway your lesson was good.

Thursday, October 23rd 2014

“The women’s group meet weekly” should be: “The women’s group meets weekly”, since “group” is the subject of the sentence and “meets” is the verb that agrees with it in number.

Saturday, November 8th 2014

    Good eye! However, this is an example of how American and British English occasionally have different grammar rules. In the UK, words like “group”, “team”, “band”, etc., use the plural form of the verb.

    Sunday, November 9th 2014

      Good to know! :)

      Tuesday, April 30th 2019

The Jade’s instruction’s fairly straightforward.

Wednesday, December 17th 2014

thanks, that was very useful

Tuesday, December 23rd 2014

Thank you so much Jade for your lesson. This is very useful to me.

So crucial to know about these tricky apostrophes.
Thank you very much Ms.Jade

You got 10 correct out of 10.

Monday, February 16th 2015

copy my quiz jade!
You got 10 correct out of 10.

Monday, February 16th 2015

In 2008, 2000 people were tested on their knowledge of how to use apostrophes. 46% failed the test.
I’ve been looking for some lessons but I’m confused. Each “teacher” has a different rule ( in youtube, of course ).
Not a thing in English has a rule. The land of rules don’t have an authority but each “native” is an authority.
Learning English is a lot of funny.

Tuesday, February 17th 2015

I’m referring to the UK.
What about the USA, Australia, South-Africa, Canada, India, etc.
I bet Swedish would pass the test. Not to mention the rest of countries of west Europe, including Spain, Portugal, Greece…

Tuesday, February 17th 2015

Hello Jade,
I have a question in relation to possessives. I’d like to know if there is any reason why sometimes you decide to use the apostrophe to indicate the possession whereas on some other ocassions you use the preposition “of”. I’m thinking, for instance, about the titles of two very well-known books which are “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”.

Wednesday, February 25th 2015

Hello Jade,

I have a doubt. Which of these forms is correct?
London landscape or London’s landscape? Or continuing, which between Credit Exam and Credit’s exam? I am confused, I would use without s.
Thank you

Friday, February 27th 2015

I got 100% correct. Thanks for your clear explication, I understood everything.
I like your accent. CHeers

Saturday, March 14th 2015

Well I’ve got 90, the last one was James’ and I put Jame’s… It’s says that both are correct but the answer for that question is James’ :P

Tuesday, August 11th 2015

I got 10 out of 10! yey! Thanks Jade for this very helpful video!! it polished my apostrophe use skills!

Wednesday, August 12th 2015

I have a confusion.
Can we use ‘s to show possession of non living things?? For example table’s legs is correct or legs of a table. In another EngVid video Emma told that we don’t use ‘s to show possession of non living things. Will any one explain it to me??

Monday, September 21st 2015

5 only, will learn more

Wednesday, September 23rd 2015

I got 100. yeay, thank you for your lesson. sometimes a simple thing confusing me.

Hi Jade,
I have a question.

Should I write “I won the 2015 university’s Vice Chancellor award” or “I won the 2015 university’s
Vice Chancellor’s award”?
Could you please tell me which one of these is correct, if any?

thanks Jade.
Today’s Jade’s lesson was confusing and intriguing:) the easiest to comprehend are possessions and collective nouns, the hardest was the first paradigm (Haberdasher’)Hatcham makes me lalugh- Hashem- Hashemite kingdom of Jordan. 9 out of 10. bad result for me.

Thanks for the very good lesson, but I’m a little confused about one of the questions in the quiz.Is it correct to say,” dining table’s leg”? I thought we should say the leg of the dining table.

HI! Jade, I’m often confused when talking about “false possessives”. You know, what I mean is that sometimes I believe that a noun is a possessive noun, but it turns out to be that it has switch into an adjective modifying another noun. Could you help me please?…Thank You

Hi Jade!
Thank you for the lesson! Everything is pretty clear with the possessions, but I have another question: why you said “The women’s group meet weekly.” not : “The women’s group MEETS weekly.”?

Hi Friends,
Am I right about the following sentences????
“Lulu’s and Angela’s boy friends.”
This sentence can mean; Lulu and Angela have more than one boyfriend each. In other words “Lulus’s boyfriends and Angela’s boyfriends.” OR It can be enplaned as there are more than one boyfriend, most probably two boyfriends, each one belongs to one.
“Lulu’s and Angela’s boy friend.” This sentence can be paraphrased as “Lulu’s boy friend and Angela’s boy friend.
“Lulu and Angela’s boy friends.” This sentence means there are boyfriends belong to Lulu and Angela. More than one maybe two or more.
“Lulu and Angela’s boyfriend.” There is one boy friend whom belongs to Lulu and Angela, in other word they share one boyfriend due to any reason that is non of our business!!!
Your comments would highly be appreciated specially from EngVid group.
Many thanks.
