There are two main reasons to use an apostrophe: 1. To indicate possession - if a noun belongs to someone, an apostrophe followed by an s (-‘s) can be used to show that the noun belongs to someone/ something e.g. They were John’s books. The -‘s highlights that the books belong to John 2. To replace letters - some phrases can be cut down into one word by removing a letter and replacing it with an apostrophe e.g is not - isn’t (the -o- is replaced) could not - couldn’t (the -o- is replaced) they are - they’re (the -a- is replaced)
