Re: The vanishing apostrophe.
Lately I've noticed that many A2Kers don't use apostrophes in their posts any more. I'm interested to know why. Is it now considered OK not to use apostrophes at all in some countries? And is apostrophe usage still taught & expected in students' writing in schools in your country? (Still is in Oz.)
Actually, I observe the apostrophe to be breeding like pups, but in the wrong places...I get very annoyed by its misuse...it's a shame.
OK....new apostrophe version of that:
