Welcome to Grammar Lesson Monday!
This continuous series will address many common grammar mistakes made in the media and that I've seen more than once. I strive to make the world a better place with good grammar.
Today, we will learn how to differentiate between "there" and "their" and "they're."
"There" is a place.
Let's go over there.
"Their" is possessive.
I want to go over there to see their fabulous vegetable garden.
"They're" is a contraction of "they" and "are."
I want to go over there to see their fabulous vegetable garden. It belongs to the Smiths. I can't believe they're going on vacation and leaving it to rot for a month.
That's it for today. Celebrate good grammar!
