"Your" and "You're"

Recommended Posts

Do you use the right form?

 

"your" being possessive,

"you're" being a contraction of "you are"

 

and, what do you think about the fact that so many people use the wrong form?

Yes I use the correct form and if I post online and it isn't the right form, I always go back and edit it :D

I think I use the right form for the most part. It honestly doesn't bother me when people use the wrong form.

I've known which is which since the first grade. It bothers me to no extent if the wrong one is used.

I try not to be a grammar nazi, but sometimes I just have to respond with "your'e" or something like that just to screw with them.

The correct form is "yer," ya silly filly.

 

Yer really gay.

Yer, that's what I dun!

 

Er yer! Regulus is awesome!

 

Yer, yer bet yer ass that's right!

 

Yer be not too well at this, ain't ya?

I don't mind it when people use the wrong form.

But I'll try to always use the right form.

I always use the correct form unless it's a typo. I honestly can't take people seriously when they misuse your and you're. It's like it makes their entire message useless. I know that sounds kind of extreme, but so does not knowing the difference between your and you're. It's not rocket science.

I've never typed the wrong form unless the autocorrect did it in my phone. It bothers me a lot when I see the wrong form used. Sometimes I even correct people.

A simple thing such as your and you're shouldn't be too difficult to learn.

 

And if I have ruined you're day, I'm sorry.

 

 

I actually wrote "your" on the first try but I WANTED to get it intentionally wrong, even then it's difficult for me. x_x

 

 

 

 

It's not rocket science.

Who cares? Let's just call it "Yor" and save the headache.

I'm very anal about punctuation and spelling, so even though it annoys me I go back and edit it. The only times I don't is when I'm so lazy you could steal my PC from right under my nose and I wouldn't give a damn. :wacko:

Like Wierd Al, it is bothersome to me when people do blatant word crimes like using your/you're incorrectly.

It doesn't really irk me that much.  Ninety percent of the time, it's just a common mistake.

I try my best to use the correct form. Sometimes I forget but as long as I know/remember "You're" is a contraction, I'm good.

I am a huge grammar nazi. I love theoatmeal's comics on grammar.

My biggest pet peeve is when you're, your, their, their, and there are used incorrectly. I often wonder if they even tried passing grade school. My ex-best friend got "i do wat i want" tattooed across her chest in size 800 font. Notice the prefix "ex". I couldn't bring myself to talk to her after that.

I do use the correct form (or at least i try to, i make typos and errors when i'm tired or confused as English isn't my primary language). Don't get me wrong, i do think it's important to write neatly and properly as possible, but at the same time i think you're being obsessive over a single menial issue if you can at least understand a point that's being driven.
