What is the possessive form of family?

Answer

The possessive form of the word "family" is "family's." An example of this in a sentence is, "The family's car broke down halfway through their vacation." Possessives indicate ownership or belonging.

The possessive forms of many English nouns follow specific rules. If a word is singular, the possessive is made by adding an apostrophe followed by the letter "s." This is the guideline used to form "family's." If a word is plural and ends in the letter "s," only the apostrophe is added to make the possessive variation, such as "the animals' cages in the zoo." However, if the plural form of a noun does not end in an "s," then both an apostrophe and final "s" are added, as in "children's stories."
