    The nation state is in English Turkey. The plural of a noun takes an 's', as a flock of turkeys. An apostrophe may indicate possession or close association, as in a turkey's master. The rule for the possessive case of a plural is to append the apostrophe after the plural 's', as the herd of turkeys' master.

    But "overthough". I'm gonna have another gin and quinine tonic.

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    Only if it were "mooxe". Usually the comparison is goose/geese to moose/meese.

    Perhaps you could use ox/oxen and axe/axen, but if you used axen in a sentence, some may wonder what you're askin'.
