Assunto:  Re: which is correct ? Cris´s life or Cris´life
 
Mensagem:  The correct form is Chris's life. (1) Add 's to singular personal nouns. boy +'s = boy's (2) Add 's to singular personal nouns ending in s. actress +'s = actress's (3) Add 's to plural irregular personal nouns. children +'s = children's (4) Add ' to plural personal nouns ending in s. boys +' = boys' (5) Add 's to names ending in s. Chris +'s = Chris's As a child, I clearly recall being taught to add the -'s only after nouns not ending in s. Clearly, that information was not correct.
