    Proper nouns not pronouns, goof.

    Just put 's on all singular nouns, proper or common. It's much easier that way.

    At the risk of exposing myself as a redneck pronouncing life wrong...

    Jones's looks right given pronunciation as Jonesez.

    Hippocrates's looks wrong as I don't say Hippocratesez in the possessive form.

    I could see the standardization in writing alter future pronunciation standards.

    You know @BirdWatcher@BirdWatcher is not a 16 year old Puerto Rican runaway right? He’s a middle aged weed addict from British Columbia, Canada. I think you’ve been catfished.

    I thought if it ended in an "s" you just added an apostrophe. No extra "s" needed.

    So...
