Possessive vs. Plural: The media can't even get it right!
Tonight I saw a report on the news wherein the phrase “SUV’s” was used– incorrectly.
It was not a possessive issue; they were speaking of the plural form. This was a quote from some area of the government, and I’m not sure whether it was written that way on the government papers, or spoken and the news channel wrote it incorrectly.
Either way, it made me cringe! (Forgive my high expectations– these are educated people, whether government or media!)
SUVs = Plural
SUV’s = Possessive (belonging to one SUV, mind you. Two or more would be SUVs’.)
