Hmmm, What’s the Right Way to Use That Apostrophe?

There are numerous examples to this, but the ‘Jesus’ example always works well…

Question: What would be the proper way to say.. “It would be different if their were multiple Jesus’es.”

‘es? ‘s? s’? no apostrophe at all?

Provide your best examples of this in the comments too. While we’re at it, let’s have a little more fun… What are some of the craziest words to pluralize? and what’s the proper answer?

Plural of Moose? Yep, it’s Moose

Got Plurals?

  1. I think “Jesuses”, no apostrophe. But you mustn’t change the pronunciation of the preceding vowel: “Chris” => “Chrises”? No; you’d pronouce that “Chryses”, so it must be “Chrisses”. I think.
