I am a Grammar Nazi.

So sue me.

I don't understand how you can't handle the concept of

you're and your.

they're and their.



You're is the contracted form of YOU ARE.

This form is used in sentences using "you" as the subject of the sentence with the verb "to be" used as either the helping verb (e.g. You're going ..., You're watching ...) or the principal verb of the sentence.

Examples:

You're going to steal my pajamas?
You're much better at guitar than I am.

Your is the possessive pronoun form. This form is used to express that something belongs to YOU.

Examples:

Your brother is annoying.
I think your skills are outstanding.



Same concept as they're and their.

You're all frickin' old enough to have gone through 6th grade English class, so this shouldn't be THAT impossible of a concept.


Needless to say, I will set your mother on fire.
