Grammar Rant: ‘There’, ‘Their’, & ‘They’re’

One grammatical mistake that we all frequently stumble upon is the incorrect uses of ‘there’, ‘their’, and ‘they’re’. I never have fully understood why they are used so incorrectly all the time! I see it at least four times every time I go on a social media sites. I honestly feel bad for people that don’t know the difference. It makes you wonder what kind of education they have received in their lives. I don’t mean that in a mean way, sometimes people do it by mistake, but you can certainly tell who knows the correct uses and who doesn’t.

One thought on “Grammar Rant: ‘There’, ‘Their’, & ‘They’re’

  1. I cannot emphasize how much I agree with your grammar rant! It really irritates me when I go on Facebook, or Twitter and see a countless number of people that do not know the differences between “there”, “their”, and “they’re”. It truly amazes to see people my age and older still making the elementary mistakes. I always wonder as well why people struggle so much with using the right one in their grammar, as if they missed school the day the teacher went over that lesson.
