Apostrophes Now: UK at war over bad punctuation

AFP, LONDON

Tony Maher, the group’s general manager, said apostrophes were a problem for many people.

“Personally, I would leave the street names as they are in the hope that our children learn how to use apostrophes correctly. I still see shops with ‘greengrocers’ apostrophes’ emblazoned in their windows such as ‘Apple’s — 20p, Orange’s 25p, Sock’s £2’ and so on,” Maher said. “I think it is one argument that will continue for many years to come.”
