Your and You're

By jhallen ·
"Your" is possessive.

Correct example. This is your car.

"You're" is a contraction of "you are."

Correct example: You're a champion.

Common error: "Your a sweetheart."

Sign to be placed on gas pumps sent to every Shamrock gas station in the US.

"Your on video camera."

Hey, why not use some of your outrageous gasoline profits to buy a grammar checker or hire someone who can write standard English.

But, at least I'm not bitter!

by mjd420nova In reply to Your and You're
