Different Approaches to Learning
Your vs. You're
Two words that are commonly misused are your and you're. It is easy to know when to use them if you remember that an apostrophe (') takes the place of a letter(s). Therefore, you're is a contraction that takes the place of you are. On the other hand, your is a possessive pronoun that shows ownership. An example would be The cat chased its tail. It wouldn't make sense for the sentence to include it is. So, remember to break up a contraction to see if it makes sense in the sentence.
