What is the correct possessive for nouns ending in s?

I know that we pronounce "someone else's" as "someone else sus."
I'm wondering how do we pronounce others'.

Is it pronounced others, "others sus," or "other sus"?

  • "else sus"? Who are you who put three "s"s in the pronunciation of "else's"? For me, it's "elsiz". – Stewart Jul 3 '11 at 16:03

There is no difference in pronunciation among others, other's, and others'. They are pronounced the same as others.

  • +1 (It is interesting to learn that others is pronounced the same as others!) – Cerberus Jun 12 '11 at 2:15
  • @Cerberus. Umm... I think that was others' (with the apostrophe). others all the same, but not really others'. – Tragicomic Jun 12 '11 at 14:30
  • @Tragicomic: I was teasing a bit: if you read Rob's answer literally, he says that others is pronounced the same as others. – Cerberus Jun 12 '11 at 21:34
