As a German willing to learn the English rules for apostrophes, I am confused about using it for possessives because I don't know what is exactly a possessive. Is it only for objects which someone owns or is it also if I just "have" something, or I borrow or rent something and for abstract things.
So, can you tell me, which of the following are possessives and which aren't?
- Morgan's house is red.
- Morgan's appartement, which he bought last year, is red.
- Morgan's appartement, which he rents since last year, is red.
- Morgan's love is endless.
