There vs. Their vs. They’re: Which is Correct?
There, their, and they’re; they sound alike, right? Obviously, they are (they’re) not the same interchangeable word.
Here is a simple trick to know when to use each one:
“There” is for pointing out something.
Example: That boy over there.
Example: There is a piece of pizza.
Their means something belongs to them.
Example: It is their pizza.
An easy way to differentiate “their” from “there” and “they’re” is to associate the letter “i” in “their” with a belonging.
Another example: Their kid just walked away.
“They’re” is simply an abbreviation for “they are.”
Example: They’re going to school.
