POSSESSIVE -‘S – NAME + ‘S

This is Susan’s brother = this is her brother.
This is Jacob’s sister = this is his sister.

POSSESSIVE -‘S – PRONUNCIATION

Be careful how you pronounce possessive ‘s.
It is either heard as /S/ or as /Z/

Jacob’s sister /z/
Susan’s brother /z/
Ana’s friend /z/
Robert’s friend /s/

 

After vowels and voiced consonants, ‘s is pronounced as /z/
And after voiceless consonants, it is pronounced as /s/
