    Apostrophe Usage

    A thread for Neil - Please link all the apostrophe usage related posts in this thread.

    And please stop being an apostrophe Nazi in every other thread,It just seems like that you have some sort of filter on this thing. Initially it was funny, now it is annoying.

    No space.

    Should've kept your gob shut.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    I hate to get all finnicky, I really do - but while we're alive we are the custodians of our identity, and our language plays a big part in that. I'd hate for our children's children's children to not know that a (.) comes at the end of a (sentence). The problem is that anyone who actually could've used that bit of knowledge probably mistook it for a tit.

    Not strictly asking a question for mine. Would say a comma rather than a question mark.
