How to Remember the Difference Between There, They’re and Their
Still having trouble remembering the difference between there, they’re and their? Use these simple tips to remember.
THEY’RE — The word they’re is probably the easiest to remember. Just remember that you are trying to say “they are.”
THEIR — This one is a little more difficult but not impossible. In this case, just try to remember the letter I and then think, “I own this.” Since the word THEIR focuses on possession (ownership, not the spooky ghost kind) then the use of this word should be easy to remember.
THERE — For this form, just remember the other two forms. Once you can rule them out, then this form probably applies.
