Hi. The definition and example of love affair I quoted above are from the OALD(Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary).love affair noun
2. great enthusiasm for something
the English love affair with gardening
And I'd like to know if I need to add 's to the English ? In my opinion, since the English means the people of England and after it is a noun, I need to use 's to show possesion. Is my thinking correct ? Or the English is acting as an adjective and modifying love affair ?
