James or James' or even James's

Recommended Posts

I think James's and James' are both correct gramatically. That's English for you.

Lot`s of sly gigs in there about not winning cups........ban the bastards!

 

It should be St James`s Park to be grammatically correct.

Nah, I definitely think there should be an apostrophe in there somewhere.

Why does it?

Apostophes denote ownership, so does that mean St James owns the park.

Looking at it another way, is it The Emirates Stadium or The Emirates' Stadium?

She's a great presenter IMO....I felt quite nostalgic seeing that report. :nufc:

always thought the apostrophe after the "s" is what made the "ses" become pronounced.

 

So I reckon:

 

Spelling : Pronounced

St James : St James

St James' : St Jame-ses

St James's : St Jame-ses-ses
