Wednesday word: You’re vs. your !

Many of our users get confused when using you’re or your. Of course, the example above shows mistakes both in spelling and grammar.

So let’s explain:

You’re is a contraction for “you are”. For example, “you’re amazing”, “you’re smart”, “You’re not really wearing that are you?”

Your, on the other hand, is a possessive adjective. It tells us that something that belongs to you. For example, “your dog”, “your unicorn”, “what is your favorite color”?
