Apostrophes

  • July 2, 2010, 2:44pm

Sorry porsche, but you are actually wrong. '90s in grammatically correct, not 90's, because the apostrophe does not replace anything or show possession when it is between the 90 and the s. It's like saying are'nt instead of aren't.

My basic thoughts are below.

Correct: '90s (replacing the 19).

Incorrect 90's (not replacing anything or showing possession), 90s (would be 90s and not 1990s).
