Units of Time and Money as Possessive Adjectives.


With units of time (minute, hour, day, month, year, etc) used as possessive adjectives, an 's is added. The same holds true for monetary terms:


  • a day's wait
  • an hour's delay
  • 5 days' hard work
  • a few hours' time
  • 6 months' gestation
  • a dollar's worth
