Which is grammatically incorrect, “tomorrows” or “tomorrow’s”? find out.

tomorrows” or “tomorrow’s”

Both “tomorrows” and “tomorrow’s” are English words. Each one has a different meaning so one would be correct in some sentences and the other would be correct in other sentences.

You add the plain letter to make a singular noun plural, but you add ’s to make it possessive. So both are correct, depending on the meaning or context being used.

Tomorrows is the plural of tomorrow. For example, “All my tomorrows have come at once” is an expression. “There won’t be any more yesterdays but there will be plenty of tomorrows.”

Tomorrow’s is the possessive or more properly genitive form. It means of tomorrow. The meeting that will happen tomorrow is the meeting of tomorrow or tomorrow’s meeting. We use the genitive form to indicate belonging, often expressed as of.

Tomorrow’s meeting is a term used to indicate a meeting that will take place the following day, that is tomorrow. Tomorrow’s meeting is correct. Tomorrows meeting is incorrect.

To show the possessive form, we require the apostrophe “s”. This indicates that the meeting will take place the next day which is tomorrow. The terms “tomorrow” and “meeting” are linked.

The apostrophe “s” (‘s) creates a total difference. meaning. It means belonging to. I’ll give some examples again. Tom’s mother makes great sandwiches. Those boys’ dads will not be happy that they played in the dirty water.

The meaning in both examples is: belonging to, or the Mother of Tom, in the first example. Also, in the second sentence the 2, 3, or 4 days, (more than one dad), for those 2, 3 5, 7 boys will be very angry. The point of the grammar here is that the apostrophe (‘) is placed behind the s when the noun is plural.

There is another use of the apostrophe, and that’s to show that a letter has been omitted in an abbreviation. Tomorrow’s can be used as an abbreviation for tomorrow is, just as that’s, in the last sentence, is an abbreviation for that is. So, we can say “tomorrow’s my birthday”.

Tomorrows(without the apostrophe) is also grammatically correct but it isn’t common in English. Tomorrows is the plural of tomorrow but tomorrow is usually singular(it is one day) 

Why is it Tomorrow’s meeting and not Tomorrows meeting rather?

The apostrophe s is used to indicate that the meeting and tomorrow are linked. Tomorrows is the plural of tomorrow without the apostrophe.

Because there is only one tomorrow as it is mostly considered, the plural of tomorrow isn’t very helpful in English. Tomorrows is only used in the context of the concept that you will have many tomorrows, implying that there will be more time in the future. For example, There are six tomorrows in any week. The meaning? Monday is tomorrow if you are speaking on a Sunday. Tuesday is the tomorrow if you are speaking on a Monday; Wednesday is the tomorrow if you are speaking on a Tuesday and so on and so on.

The use of “Tomorrows” is most likely a more poetic style of English that isn’t used in everyday conversation. The song “All My Tomorrows” by Frank Sinatra is an example.

Tomorrow’s morning show or Tomorrow morning’s show

Tomorrow’s morning show is more common when there is also a show in the afternoon and you want to avoid confusion by saying it is the morning show and not the afternoon show.

Tomorrow morning’s show is a common way to describe a show that is happening tomorrow morning.

To avoid confusion, you can just say:

There is a show tomorrow morning at 9 am.

Correctness depends on the use of each form of this noun tomorrow. The usage ”Tomorrows” follows the rule for all nouns, You add an “s” to tell your listeners we mean more than one tomorrow

In summary, then the (’s), singular, and the (s’), used with a plural noun, give them an added meaning in the language. That new meaning is: belonging to.

Adding an “s” to a noun in a main way in English to tell everyone that you refer to more than one, or the plural as we say in English Grammar.
