Does the number of syllables in a word determine the use of apostrophewhat are syllables?
Syllables are the 'beats' in a word, e.g. 'chair' has one
syllable but 'ta-ble' has two. Try clapping as you say a word - the
number of claps is equal to the number of syllables. The number of
syllables has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the use of
apostrophes - that is determined by factors such as whether a noun
is singular or plural, and whether it ends in an 's'.
