If I want to describe a person/group and then refer to something of theirs. Would these be permissible?
- The guy in charge's hat
- It is the people of France's doing
- It is everyone else's fault
- The electrified fence's voltage
Which more commonly would be phrased like:
- The hat of the guy in charge
- The people of France did it
- Everyone else is at fault
- The voltage of the electrified fence
If it is not what are the rules? Or where can I find the rules pertaining to this construction?
In my native language the former examples can all be constructed like singular compound words, where the ownership would be indicated at the end of just one word.
