There vs. Their vs. They’re: Which is Correct?

There vs. Their vs. They're

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.
