what do I win?
if there are multiple visitors doesn't it?
with lots of visas, surely it is the second option
clarify, this refers to 2 men who are applying for visas.
my inclination is to say number 2 but i suspect number one is probably also acceptable. anyone?
Visitor's visas = One visitor with lots of visas (perhaps a gangland member, planning to sell some on the black market. Maybe involved in drug-smauggling as well)
Visitors' visas = Many people with many visas.
I think the '...' confuses the issue though as it looks like an apostrohpe after the last letter. Don't do it again.
if there is one visa for a visitor, it is a visitor's visa.
if there are 2, why CAN'T i bung an S on the end and declare it correct? who is going to stop me?
Or you boss may say. "that's grammatically incorrect, now bend over and take it..."
visitor's = singular (i.e. 1) possessive
visitors = plural i.e. more than 1, or in your case, 2.
visitors' = plural possessive
he likes grammar.
like the actual name for it?
If so, it's the first one, I reckon.
