# In the LaTex Glossary package, how do you make a possessive acronym?

How would I make an acronym possessive? I've tried using \gls{ACR}['s] but that will just print out "Acronym (ACR)'s".

main.tex is typed as follows:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[acronym]{glossaries}
\makeglossaries

% acronyms:
\newacronym{ACR}{ACR}{Acronym }

\begin{document}

\gls{ACR}['s]

\end{document}


You could use the acronym package. Rather than glossaries.

You will need to defined the following method in your preamble:

\newcommand{\acposs}[1]{%
\expandafter\ifx\csname AC@#1\endcsname\AC@used
\acs{#1}'s%
\else
\aclu{#1}'s (\acs{#1})%
\fi
}


You can then call \acposs{ACR} to get Acronym's (ACR).

See my other answer if you want to use the glossaries package (a much simpler solution).

\setacronymstyle{long-sc-short}

just after \makeglossaries.
EDIT: Acronym style long-short also works, and it doesn't introduce small caps, unlike long-sc-short.
