A Conversation for Declining English
the princes' police
Sea Change Started conversation Aug 3, 2001
I live in America and I have never seen either prince' or police' written as a plural possessive. If each prince had his own secret police (say, in David Eddings' long fantasy epics) I'd expect to see what I titled this conversation.
If it's what's actually considered grammatically correct here, then nobody follows this rule.
