I've already heard the 's usage in sentences that seemed like
- "I went to the doctor's"
- "I'm going to my mom's"
Is this a possessive usage of 's? Is it correct and/or common?
I searched for the grammar related to this, but I couldn't find it. I found a few entries on Google searching for the full sentences and that this construction is used to talk about places like a doctor's office or a dentist's office. But what about other people?
Could I use it to say something like "I'm going to John's" or must I add "place"/"house" after the 's?
