This super-simple template’s purpose: preserve verisimilitude, by better indicating possessive case (i.e. when something belongs to someone).

It accepts a phrase (typically a name), then outputs the same, appending either ’s or depending on the existing, incoming state of terminal “s”’s.

Example: “{{Possessive|[Names.main]}} [bodypart]” → “Stephen’s nose”, “Julius’ eye”, etc.

Usage

  • {{Possessive|Fred}} thing in the text of an article yields “Fred’s thing”.
  • {{Possessive|Linus}} OS yields “Linus’ OS”.

Short form is (or, will be) po.
