Dear Mr. Yang,
Thank you for your reply telling me that People's is correct. Of course it
should be as it's the name of a nation, and we use to say Chinese people,
instead of Chinese peoples, however, we can say the peoples of the
commonwealth. Therefore, is The Peoples' Republic of China is grammatically
correct? or it's a proper noun nothing to do with gramma or literacy?
Thank you again for an early reply to my silly question.
Peoples' Republic ' refer to the Mongolian people, the Manchurian people, the Tibetan people and also different minority group.
People's Republic ' stress that we are all 'one' people, irrespective of race. "People's Republic " is used to show the republic belongs to the people of China. It is not the King's republic, the general's republic, the bishop's republic, the rich men's republic, the Government's republic, but the republic of every person in the nation.
