Finish notes from class:
9/19 – continuation of possessive noun - Intro to separate/joint possession:
Separate possession = when two nouns possess something individually – what is possessed by these two nouns will usually be a plural.
Ex: William’s and Ben’s projects were nicely done. SEPARATE POSSESSION b/c they both have individual projects.
Ex: I did not want to drive my mother’s or father’s cars.
Ex: Sally’s and Teddy’s parents are completely different.
Joint possession = when two possess something together Ex: My aunt and uncle’s house is in Fairfield, CT. This means that their house is theirs together.
SEP has two apostrophes; joint has one.
Homework: TB p. 16 Exs. 1, 2, 4 + WB p. 12
