Definitely not the one with the apostrophe!

That is for when you are referring to your "SKY's color" for example. The correct spelling for plural SKY is Skies. :thumbs:

so does Toyota have a lot full of Camrys or Camries. I just was wondering if the pluralization changes because it is a name and not the word anymore...

I'd say...

As an English Instructor I'd say the correct "standard" English for the plural of Sky is Skies. However, due to the fact that it is a proper noun and deviation rules allowed, I'd say "Sky" without any s, es, ies, 's, can stand for the plural form on its own.

I saw 3 Sky earlier this week at the auto dealership.

I saw 3 Skies earlier this week at the auto dealership.

But I am a bit edgy about,

I saw 3 Skys(skitz) earlier this week at the auto dealership.

I saw 3 Skyes(?) earlier this week at the auto dealership.

I saw 3 Sky's(?) earlier this week at the auto dealership.

So as you can see, in a sentence, the second appears most correct. However, in informal spoken language, any form would work since you're just trying to get the point across.

For me, SKY is spelled with all caps
So plural is = SKYs (I saw 3 SKYs)
Possessive is SKY's (That CAI is that SKY's)
Plural Possessive = SKYs' (The SKYs' have all the best colors)

What got me thinking about it was when I drove by a row of SKYs on my way to work the other night... right at the starting line for the Boston Marathon. I didn't get to watch the coverage... did anyone see any cars?

Sky is easy

The plural of "Sky" is not so hard. Anyone care to take a crack at the plural of "Solstice" ? Solstii ? Solstee ?? Please don't tell me it's "Solstices" ! :willy:

Hysterical.

I'm going with Skys for the pluralization.

I think I'm partial to Soltices for the plural of a Soltice.

It is "Solstices," as "Solsti" would necessitate the Latin spelling "Solstus" in order to have a pluralized spelling of "Solsti."

Im with Rick on this.

Admittedly, the plural to Solstice is much cooler. (Solei or Solstii)

Skys for me all the way. We are talking about a trade name for a vehicle. If we were talking about what is above us as in cloudy skies...only then would I use the "ies".
