There their and they re

There, Their and They’re!

These are three commonly confused HOMOPHONES,

but each have different meanings


I can t take it

I can’t take it!

People who mix up there, their and they're drive me crazy! It's worse than not knowing the difference between your left and your write.


There

THERE

  • There means in or at the place pointed to, indicated or referred to.

  • There refers to a PLACE (specified or unspecified).

  • It can also be used to show that something exists.

    The opposite of THERE is HERE(if you can replace there with here it is correct).


Their

THEIR

  • Their is a possessive pronoun that means

    “to belong.”

  • Their shows OWNERSHIP.

  • Their is used to indicate possession. If you can replace “their” with “our” you are using the correct word.


They re

THEY’RE

  • They’re is used as a contraction which means “they are.” If you can say the words

    “they are” in the sentence, then you are using

    the correct form.

    Example: The following sounds FUNNY…….

    The dog sat over they are for ten minutes.

    Correct: They’re thinking of getting a dog.

    They are thinking of getting a dog.
