Do you know the difference between your and you’re? Even though they sound the same, they mean two very different things!
Make sure you know your sh*t, and not that you’re sh*t!
Let me explain…
YOUR is a possessive adjective, used to describe something that belongs to YOU! Remember YOUR is usually always followed by a noun.
What is your name?
Where’s your car?
Is that your coffee?
Why don’t we go to your room?
Other possessive adjectives are: my, his, her, their, and our.
YOU’RE is actually the contraction of “you are,” as in “I think you’re hot!” Contractions are used all the time in spoken and written English (mainly informal writing).
You’re always late.
When you’re ready, we can go.
Is that what you’re wearing?
I think you’re lying.
Finally a rule that has NO exceptions!
If you’re able to replace the word with “you are,” you should be using you’re. If that doesn’t work, your is your only choice!
