Anyones or Anyone’s? Which is correct?

Anyone’s is correct because anyone is always singular. Anyone’s is the possessive form of the word which means “anyone” owns something. Anyones is incorrect and should not be used in English. 


We use anyone’s in English when we want to show that something belongs to any of the people that we are talking about. This is common to use when we are talking to a group of people.

Is anyone’s daughter called Joanna?

Anyone’s is not common as a contraction of “anyone is” because anyone is usually used in a question and therefore the “is” is placed before anyone.


Anyones is incorrect because anyone is singular and therefore we do not need to make “anyone” plural in English.


Anyones’ is also incorrect in English because when we add the apostrophe after the s, it is because the word is already plural. As we have already said above, anyone can’t be plural so for this reason anyones’ is incorrect and should not be used in English.
