Topic: Plural Apostrophes
Posted: Monday, November 23, 2015 4:43:26 PM
As the English language is a living language, things do change. However, one common practice which is still unacceptable is the use of plurals for possessives or denoting of missing words or digits. If the shortened 1960 is said as only "60" then the proper way to write it is '60. The apostrophe is substituting for the missing "19." If one were to write "60's" then we are talking about it belonging to something called 60 as a possessive.
