SOURCE: what is a possessive noun

To express possession (ownership) in English one appends an apostrophe (') followed by s
The nose of the moose can be expressed as the moose's nose.
The rule is straightforward. When the noun to which the ownership refers to is the plural, the rule can be applied as stated above append ('s). However if the mark of the plural is s (regular plural) some people want to use the rule above, some others say that the last s should not be written.
Eaample: The hind legs of the wolves can be expressed as the wolves's hind legs or the wolves' hind legs. In the first expression you have wolves's while in the second you have wolves'.
Both rules are correct, but nowadays the tendency is to use the second form. It is a matter of usage.
If you are a student follow what your teacher says. When you write your own books, choose the one you want, but if your editor insists on using the other one, you have a problem.

What is a possessive noun


It is a common noun used in a possessive sense, eg "the boat's deck". As such it often involves adding an apostrophe-s to the noun. Where the noun already ends in an s, just the apostrophe may be added eg "the cars' exhaust fumes" for more than one car. The noun may have some other plural form, and we go back to the basic rule eg "the mice's cages".

What are possessive nouns


Possessive Form of a noun.
To express possession one appends an apostrophe followed by s ('s). That is the possessive form of the noun.
The paw of the tiger : the tiger's paw. Tiger's is the possessive form of the noun tiger.
When the noun is a plural ending in s, the possessive form could be ...s's or ...s'. Both forms are correct. If you are a student and your teacher insists on using one form rather than the other, do as you are expected. Once you start writing your own books, use the form that pleases you. It is just a matter of usage, and usage is changing all the time.

What is a possessive noun


There is no such thing as a possessive noun.
The real question should be : What is the possessive form of a noun? How do you show possession (ownership) relating to some noun?
To express possession (ownership) in English one appends an apostrophe (') followed by s. To append is to put at the end.
The nose of the moose can be expressed as the moose's nose.
The rule is straightforward. When the noun to which the ownership refers is in the plural, the rule can be applied as stated above append ('s). However if the mark of the plural is s (regular plural) some people want to use the rule above, some others say that the last s should not be appended..
Example: The hind legs of the wolves can be expressed as the wolves's hind legs or the wolves' hind legs. In the first expression you have wolves's while in the second you have wolves'.
Both rules are correct, but nowadays the tendency is to use the second form. It is a matter of usage.
If you are a student follow what your teacher says. When you write your own books, choose the one you want, but if your editor insists on using the other one, you have a problem.

What are possessive nouns


There is no such thing as a possessive noun.
However
when we want to show that something belongs to somebody or something, we usually add 's to a singular noun and an apostrophe ' to a plural noun, for example:
  • the boy's ball (one boy)
  • the boys' ball (two or more boys)

What does possessive noun mean


A possessive noun is a noun indicating ownership or possession. For example 'the story of the witness' can be turned into 'the witness's story'.
The possessive is shown by adding an 's to the end of a noun or just an ' after plural nouns already ending in -s. Examples:
the car of my mother = my mother's car
the teacher of our class = our class's teacher
the coats of the children = the children's coats
the covers of the books = the books' covers
the meeting of the bosses = the bosses' meeting

The possessive is also used as a shorthand for something that does not literally belong to that person or thing, it's used in place of 'of' or 'for'. Examples:
The ladies' room does not belong to ladies, it means that it is designated for the use of ladies.
A store that sells men's suits doesn't sell suits that belong to some men, it sells suits for men.
A book of Shakespeare's plays are not plays that belong to Mr. Shakespeare, they are plays written by him.

What is inflection of nouns? Can you please give me at least one or two examples of inflection of nouns?


Inflection is used to indicate a) number, b) case or c) gender in nouns, verbs and other parts of speech. The result is that a word will often become slightly altered, or letters are added to it, in order to show that a shift (in number, case or gender) has taken place.
It is found in many languages of the world, especially common in European languages, including Old English, but less commonly found in Modern English.

Concerning NOUNS

Examples:
a) To indicate number (singular vs plural): goose / geese; ox / oxen; child / children; medium / media; book / books; alumna / alumnae, etc.
Sometimes the form stays the same however: deer / deer; sheep / sheep, etc.

b) To indicate case:
In English: possession or "genitive case": Paul / Paul's (of Paul); dog / dog's (of the dog), etc.
In German: possession or "genitive case": Mann (man) / Mannes (of the man) - Der Hund des Mannes (The man's dog).
Also in words like Tuesday [Tu's Day]; Wednesday [Weden's Day --> Wodan's Day]; Thursday [Thur's Day --> Thor's Day], etc.

c) To indicate gender:
Often found in words borrowed from other languages:
alumnus (male) / alumna (female); alumni (male plural) / alumnae (female plural), etc.
Even in names: Marc / Marcia; Andrew / Andrea; George / Georgia, etc.

I hope this is helpful.
