The most overused and underappreciated punctuation mark utilized in the writing of the English language. It is used to indicate the omission of a letter (elision) or letters in a word, to connect words pronounced successively (contraction), or to indicate possession.
Alternatively, and much less contemporary, is the use of the term "apostrophe" to indicate a short address by a character in a play or poem to an absent party or an inanimate object. The apostrophe in this sense allows the audience a look into the speaker's thoughts toward a person or object that cannot respond (similar to a soliloquy).

But, in my simple ignorance, suppose
The self-same Power that brought me there brought you.

“W Szczebrzeszynie chrz¹szcz brzmi w trzcinie
I Szczebrzeszyn z tego s³ynie

Wó³ go pyta: „Panie chrz¹szczu,
Po co pan tak brzêczy w g¹szczu...”
