To recap what we’ve learned so far:
There, They’re, Their
Here’s one way for non-grammar nerds to subdue this potentially tricky trio.
- “There” rhymes with “Where.” Where’s the dog? Over THERE. OR Substitute “Here” for “There” and see if the sentence makes sense.
- “They’re” is two words, THEY and ARE jammed together. Am I the only one working? No, THEY’RE going to help.
- “Their” = Possession. The IRS (THE/IRS) thinks everything is THEIRS. THEIR bank accounts. THEIR car. THEIR houses…
Most new writers don’t realize incorrect use of these trouble triplets will send editors out of there minds. If they’re is a problem with your manuscript, their is a way to fix it. They’re is spell-check, but it won’t help you their. Try Grammar-girl. If there busy, look at Grammarly. There always willing to help folks out they’re.
