PostSubject: 'Your' and 'You're'   Wed Jun 08, 2011 4:31 am

These are the two very common words that we use in our every day life, yet we make mistakes with them all the time.

Let me run you through the differences between these two words:

Your - this word is to indicate a possession. For example, 'It is your forum.'

You're - this word is the contraction of the words 'you' and 'are', it should be used when referring to someone. For example, 'I think you're a great person.' If we were to take out of the contraction then it would be, 'I think you are a great person.'




Some common mistakes are:

=> Misusing 'your' as 'you're' and vice-versa. For example, 'I think your a great person.'
=> Not knowing the difference between the two




Thank you! I hope this lesson has helped you somewhat. Wink
