3 Most Common Grammatical Mistakes Seen Around The Internet

Ok, seems like I’ve really embraced being a grammar nazi. But I’m not really one since I make grammar and spelling mistakes once in a while too. So instead of bitching about how everyone makes stupid mistakes online, I’ll be writing about the mistakes people usually make. This way, you can avoid them.

your – you’re
“Your” is a possesive pronoun used to denote ownership.
Ex. This is your prize.

“You’re” is a contraction for the words “you are
Ex. You’re the next in line.

there – their – they’re
“There” is used to describe or point out people, places, events, things or ideas.
Ex. There is always something there to remind me.

“Their” is a possesive pronoun used to denote ownership.
Ex. They took their things and left.

“They’re” is a contradiction of the words “they are
Ex. They’re leaving for the city tonight.

than – then

“Then” is used in expressing results and consequences.
