    I’ve just had a butcher’s at your butchers quiz question on my way back from the butcher’s. I’ve used an apostrophe in butcher’s as in ‘look’ because it’s actually a possessive case as in ‘butcher’s hook’. Even that use is debatable cos it could be ‘butchers’ hook’ couldn’t it? Wot lark’s!

  2. Many thanks for your witty contribution Heather (or should that be Lady P?) You’re quite right – the ‘butcher’s hook’ could logically be ‘butchers’ hook’ – because it is a hook used by butchers as distinct from a hook used by stevedores. On the other hand, it could be considered a hook made for use by a single butcher – in which case it reverts to ‘butcher’s hook’.

    For the benefit of non-English readers, ‘Butcher’s hook’ is Cockney rhyming slang for ‘look’.

    And of course ‘larks’ is a plural, not a possessive – but then you probably knew that, didn’t you :-)
