Singular Possessive Nouns

A singular possessive noun is a singular noun that shows ownership. For example: Lisa's shoes are green. The dog's ears are floppy. "Lisa's" and "dog's" are singular possessive nouns. Singular possessive nouns are formed by adding ---'s to the end of the noun. It does not matter whether or not the noun already ends in s. For example: the table's legs, Tess's toy.
