Quote from: WGB on 27 February 2007, 07:49 PMAt the risk of starting WW3 ... I have a problem with the position of the apostrophe.The word "Group " is singular so why is the apostrophe put in the plural position.Please explain to me why the correct spelling shouldn't be "Owner's Group" instead "Owners' Group".
