ITS * The one (or ones) belonging to it. [from 17th c.] * 1645, Philip Wharton, 4th Baron Wharton, Letter to Ferdinando Fairfax, 6 February 1645: [...] both Houses have resolved to rob the North of a good friend of ITS and yours. * 2007 — Ian Austen, "Canadian Court Opens Up eBay Data to Tax Agency", _New York Times_, October 1, 2007: EBay Canada argued in court that the data sought by tax collectors was [_sic_] not ITS to give. * 1917 — Charles Henry Taylor, _History of the Board of Trade of the City of Chicago_ Vol.2 p.1259: ...the Board of Trade of Chicago can at least feel that it has played its part manfully and patriotically, and that no act of ITS has stood in the way of National victory. QUOTATIONS * For usage examples of this term, see the citations page. TRANSLATIONS USAGE NOTES * _Its_ is now distinguished from _it's_ (a contraction of "it is" or "it has"). For example, _IT'S going to rain_ is equivalent to _IT IS going to rain_, and _IT'S got three wheels_ is equivalent to _IT HAS three wheels._ * Like _it_, _its_ is usually avoided when referring to humans. _Its_ is commonly used with animals when the gender is unknown or unimportant. With humans, _person_ is used for a person whose gender is unknown or to describe something that could be possessed by either gender, _body_ or _corpse_ are often used to describe a dead person, and _figure_, _shape_, and _silhouette_ are often used to describe what someone sees as a person but can't see clearly enough to determine an identity or gender, e.g. _The FIGURE moved behind a bush, but Josh could see ITS shadow from the moonlight._ * _Rank among most common English words:_ #72 (Gutenburg)
