What a difference an apostrophe makes. Consider the sentence in the Queen Mary post below: Time and place are the writer’s problems, and the readers’. Take away the apostrophe after readers and the sentence means the readers are the writer’s problem, not that time and place are also the readers’ problems. Interesting, huh? One little apostrophe.
