Further to the complete genocide of the English that occurs on UG on a regular basis, I thought I would advise the Pit on the following points.

There


This is a word indicative of position. Please note the following example:-

"Where is my bass?"

"It is over there, by the amp"


Here the word indicates a certain position, which is then further strengthened by the section of the sentence after the comma, giving more information.

PS This is also a temporal word-

e.g. There was a bass near to the amp, but you moved it....


They're

This is a contraction of 'they are'.

Example

What sort are they into?

They're into rock music mostly.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE 'THERE'!!


Their

This is a posessive word, usually used when other words in the possessive sense are used (such as whose for example).

Example

Whose fault is it the window is smashed?

It's not mine, I know that. It's their fault.

This is sometimes called the genitive sense.


Your

Again a posessive, denoting both singular 'you' and the collective 'you' also.

Example

'Is this your guitar?' (singular)

"Your votes count!" (collective)


You're

This is a contraction of 'you are', again it can be both singular and collective.

Example

You're a musician (singular)

You're the country's only hope (dependant on who's being addressed, can be both singular and plural)


Thank you that is all.

I thought this was going to be your Third installment.

Maybe you can do "how to spell weird" instead.
#29
I'm feeling you man.

But you seem to resemble Leonidas and his 300 warriors fighting the hords of Persians.

In other words: This is a lost cause.

For some reason, when you type like that, I hear it read out in the voice of someone who's had a helium binge.

Why is your name valennic when your avatar is quite clearly some odd metal thing which doesn't really look like much?

Answer me that without saying that avatar and username are in no way linked, and I'll give you a cookie. (Disclaimer: I won't really.)
