There vs. They’re vs. Their; Reading

18 Sep

Technical Thursday

There– location (notice the word “here”, which is also a location, inside the word “There”)

They’re – Contraction for the words “They are.” Used to mimic the sound of our speech.  Avoid contractions in formal writing.

Their – Indicates ownership.  (notice the word “heir” in “Their”)


Quick Write:

Make a list of things you Love, Hate, Fear, Respect, and that make you unique

*Make sure you have a thing in mind you can compare yourself to (think extended metaphor).
