itsposed ~ it's'posed - The way we say the words in "The way it's supposed to be." Given this new word, you won't have to figure out whether or not an apostrophe is needed. You can see from the link that I make no claim to originality. It's'posed, itsaposed. Itsposed is used for search purposes.

e.g., The truth: I'm too idiosyncratic to be a true grammar snob. I'm not particularly interested in being a grammar nazi either. . . . But I'd damned sure like to be The Grammar Czar. At my age I can't afford to be pissing away my time arguing about grammar. What I want is to be able to tell you the way it's'posed to be. That's just what I intend to do at grammar czar.
