Everything Language and Grammar

There, Their, They’re

Posted by languageandgrammar on April 24, 2008

There, there now; they’re really not as confusing as their reputations might have you believe.

 

They’re is the contraction for they are.

  • They’re related to a prominent New England family.
  • They’re not sure which candidate they’re going to hire.

 

Their is a possessive pronoun.

  • Their patience is waning.
  • Their main concern is their lack of funds.

 

There is used for everything else, such as:

  • There are two qualified candidates.
  • Your next appointment is waiting in there.
  • Let’s discuss it and go from there.
