Talk:mind one's ps and qs

no apostropheEdit

The expression is "mind your Ps and Qs" or mind one's Ps and Qs". There is no need for the apostrophe on either the P or the Q. MrMarmite (talk) 12:01, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

It's pretty common to use apostrophes to avoid ambiguity, for example a's would become as. For example for ps, there's a tendency to pronounce it as /piː.ɛs/ instead of /piːz/. Mglovesfun (talk) 11:06, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
