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 "your" and "you're."
"Your" is possessive.
No, I will not shake your hand!
"You're" is a contraction of "you" and "are."
No, I will not shake your hand! You're covered in filth!
The difference between "your" and "you're" is very similar to "their" and "they're."
That's it for today. Celebrate good grammar!
