Their, There, and They’re

Hi, everyone! How are you doing this evening? 🙂

Today let’s explore the differences between their,there, and they’re. But why?

The confusion stemming from these words is that they are examples of homophones, meaning they have the same pronunciation but differ in meaning and spelling.

So, let’s start!

  • Their is the possessive case of the pronoun theyExample: Paul and Melissa left their cell phones at home. 
  • There is an adverb that means “in or at that place”. Example: Melanie is there now (not here!)
  • They’re is a contraction of the words they and are. Example: They’re mastering the differences between their, there, and they’re. (Read more here)

These videos will help you even more! Believe me! 😉

How about doing some exercises to check out your understanding?

Please leave your comments, especially if you still have any doubt! 😉
