In another discussion, there is reference to the Saxon genitive - I'm assuming it is the standard possessive 's or s' in English. But why "Saxon" genitive? Is this correct? Whenever I see the word Saxon, I think of Saxony in Germany (or the varieties of language spoken there, either today or in the past). Is this a standard term for this form of possessive in English? (as a keen enthusiast of Anglo-Saxon English history and of the Old English language, I cannot abide the use of "Saxon" so willy-nilly!).
