PostSubject: Simple grammar class.   Sun Jun 21, 2009 2:32 am

Here are some stupid mistakes that I cringe when I see.

"This band is <insert genre here>. There pretty good."
or "This band is <insert genre here>. Their pretty good."

Both of these sentences are wrong. It should read:
"This band is <insert genre here>. They're pretty good."

Why? Because "they're" means "they are". It's a contraction, like "it's", "don't", "can't", etc.

Here's a nice little reference:
"There" is used when referencing a place.
"Their" is used when someone or something owns something. It shows possession.
And "they're" is used when you want to say "they are"; that means when you're talking about how a group of something is (that means plural).

Thank you, and good day. I'll be posting more of these if I see more stupid mistakes that make me cringe. (And yes, if you're wondering, I'm OCD about this. Get over it, crybaby.)

Too: It means also. Example: Me too!
Two: The number. Example: 2.
To: Can be used many different ways. Examples: To Mr. Smith; I am going to the store; etc.

You're: Contraction for "you are". Example: You're a cool person.
Your: Possessive. Example: That is your book.
You: ...Does this really need explaining?

Deal with it. I'm going to be the temporary troll here until someone that trolls regularly arrives.

You seem like a coolcat, so I won't troll you too hard if the chance arises.
