There is something that has been weighing down on my heart for a long time. I need to share this because there is an alarming trend I’m noticing on facebook, twitter and other popular social sharing sites. It must be stopped and the only way I know how to stop it is to tell the world! OK here it goes…
The word your is used as a possessive pronoun and the word you’re is a contraction of the words you and are. Here is a sentence using the word your. “I believe that is your red stapler over there.” And here is a sentence using the word you’re. “You’re so great for finding my stapler!”
While we’re at it, the word definitely doesn’t have an a in it, and the word grammar doesn’t have an e in it. To hear means to listen and here is a place. Their is another word used as a possessive pronoun and there indicates a place the same way here does but can also be used as an adverb.
And if you aren’t sure what a possessive pronoun or an adverb are, then take a minute to look it up before posting on the internet. Do it for the children.
Ahhh I feel much better now. Thanks for listening.
