Cade writes, “Hi, I’m having a discussion with a friend about whether it’s proper to use an apostrophe to make a contraction in place of the words “is” or “has” when used with a proper noun like a name.
I feel this is correct, though she does not: “Cade’s listening to some music.” She thinks the rule only applies to words like “he,” “she.” That would be: “He’s listening to music.”
Can you tell me whether I’m right or wrong? I believe firmly that I am, but feels just as strongly that she is.
Question: Is it OK to use an apostrophe with a person’s name?
