They're, There & Their
The problem: they're, there and their sound identical but have different meanings. What's the difference between they're, there and their? They're not complicated. After my explanation there shouldn't be any more confusion.
- It's a contraction (the fact of something becoming smaller or shorter) of they are.
There are going to be late -> There're going to be late
I think they are lying -> I think they're lying
It has several different uses:
- Noun that means that place.
Don't go there.
I saw him standing there.
- Used to begin a sentence.
There is no doubt in my mind.
There are no more jelly beans.
- of or belonging to them.
They have a dog -> What happend to their dog?
They left here the book -> Their books are on the table
