I tend to side with Bill on this issue, but I'm curious about a closely related issue: how do you, or any of the commenters, pronounce something like "Connors's forehand"? Namely, do you say "con-nerz" or "con-nerz-iz"? The second is more "logical" but also more "cluttered".
Oh, I always pronounce. Think of Homer Simpson and the "Flanderseseses."
A snippet from the Arkansas Times Blog --- March 5, 2007http://www.arktimes.com/blogs/arkansasblog/Arkansas's legislature:Rep. Steve Harrelson's resolution to make the possessive form of Arkansas end in an apostrophe s won unanimous House approval today. On to the Senate. Parker Westbrook, the Nashville historian who's made this a one-man crusade, is a happy man today.PS -- As comments note, it's non-binding. It's also correct, no matter what the Associated Press might think.
Now don't you feel awful about those things you said?
What does Bill have to say about putting periods inside quotation marks?
Lynne Truss is English, so the comma placement is correct for her.
