From the multiprocessing docs: https://docs.python.org/3/library/multiprocessing.html#contexts-and-start-methods

> The child process will only inherit those resources necessary to run the process objects run() method.

Is grammatically incorrect - the run() method belongs to the process object, and so a possessive appostrophe should be employed instead:


> The child process will only inherit those resources necessary to run the process object's run() method.

For more information about possessive appostrophes, see here: https://www.thepunctuationguide.com/apostrophe.html#possessives
