Apostrophe “d”

Margie Wakeman Wells The Apostrophe, Uncategorized 2 Comments

When an abbreviation or a proper name is used as a verb, add apostrophe d for the ending.

…It was later discovered that he had OD’d.
…We Prius’d it for the night instead of taking the big car.

When an “-ing” is needed, use apostrophe ing for the ending. [Remember that, though reporters think of the g as an “ing,” the rest of the world does not.]

…They are ID’ing him as we speak.
…We will be Outback’ing it tonight.

Happy punctuating!
