User: What is an apostrophe

Weegy: Use the apostrophe with contractions. The apostrophe is always placed at the spot where the letter(s) has been removed. Examples: don't, isn't, you're right or she's a great teacher. Use the apostrophe to show possession. [ Place the apostrophe before the s to show singular possession. Examples: one boy's hat, one woman's hat or one actress's hat. ]

The apostrophe is a punctuation mark, and sometimes a diacritical mark, in languages that use the Latin alphabet or certain other alphabets.
