"But in spite of all temptations
To belong to other nations,
He remains an Englishman!
He remains an Englishman."
W. S. Gilbert, H.M.S. Pinafore
To begin at the beginning, I should point an essential rule of grammar
out. To quote The Elements of Style, Third Edition (by E.B. White
and William Strunk, Jr.):
- Form the possessive singular of nouns by adding apostrophe 'S'. Follow
this rule whatever the final consonant. For example:
This book is the standard for English Grammar. The above rule appears
on Page One, before anything else. The used example is White's choice, not
mine. Therefore, if you feel the urge to send me mail correcting the possessive
of my last name, you'd probably better resist it.
