Abstract

The apostrophe is on its deathbed, if you believe Charles Larson, a professor of literature at American University. Larson argues that the apostrophe's murderers are those younger than thirty-five who persist in abusing this punctuation mark I agree with Larson that the apostrophe, as we now know it, seems endangered. However, I disagree with Larson's diagnosis of the cause.
