There, Their and They're ~ Could we have an English Lesson?

Real Estate Agent with Granville, Newark, Heath, Buckeye Lake & all of Central Ohio

I know I can't be alone in this, but it completely drives me nuts to see there, their and they're used incorrectly!

A quick lesson:

is a place, you can tell because it has HERE in it, also a place.

Their... means it belongs to someone, you can tell because it has HEIR in it, a someone.

They're... is a short cut for "They Are". So, if the sentence would still make sense if you switched it to "they are", then that's the right one to use.

Board is a noun, bored is an adjective which describes a noun. So if you are board, there's a problem!

Two is a number.

Too means also, if you could switch out also for your too, then it's the right one.

To, use this if it's not one of the others.

I don't claim to be perfect, in fact I'd like to be educated on one that doesn't come easily to me.

Buyer's Agent, is this right? Is there a time when it should be just buyers agent?

Any others that drive you nuts?  Please feel free to add on to this lesson.

Tracie, There there now, their lack of formal english education is somthing they're going to blame on the teachers. Nevermind they didn't pay attention in class.
