Doing the Work
It does not matter what language is your native language, where you come from or what you know. There are “facts” and there are “opinions” and here we’ll only be discussing facts of the English language. Ultimately, it’s your decision on whether you learn and apply these facts to your benefit, or choose to ignore them to your detriment.
- You, Your and You’re
- There, Their and They’re
- To, Too and Two
You - "You" relates directly to addressing another person. Using "u" in place of "you" when trying to carry on an intelligent conversation is a contradiction in terms. Intelligent people online most often will not take someone as serious when making substitutions like this. If these small details are unimportant to you then receiving correct and/or intelligent feedback or information is equally unimportant and you should re-examine your intent. Your - "Your" denotes ownership or relation to another person, object or possession. Again, using "ur" in place of "your" or "you're" when trying to carry on an intelligent conversation is a contradiction in terms. Examples: "Your shoes are untied." "I found your wallet." "Where are your keys?" You're - "You're" is an abbreviation or contraction of "you" and "are" which is what you'd use when speaking to or about someone in relation to who or what they are. This could entail praise, insult, facts or random statements. Examples: "You're very good at that." "You're the best friend I've got." "This is something you're going to have to work on." Recap: "I can assure you that you're the only one that knows what your favorite ice cream flavor is."
There - "There" refers to physical location of a person, object or an event or specific place in time. Examples: "Can you meet me over there?" "There is always a place for you at my table." "Where there is a will, there is a way." Their - "Their" refers to ownership of an object, place or relevant place in time. Examples: "Their house is very clean and organized." "Have you got their new telephone number?" "Their training program is very comprehensive." They're - "They're" is an abbreviation of "they" and "are" which is what you'd use when speaking to or about someone in relation to who or what they are. This could entail praise, insult, facts or random statements. Examples: "They're the best basket weaver in the world!" "How do you know they're going to answer?" "In December they're going to meet us." Recap: "There was once a place where their ancestors they're always going to have plenty of delicious ice cream."
To - "To" refers to destination, time or distance. Examples: "How can I get from here to there?" "I went to the store." "The store is open from 8am to 5pm." Too - "Too" means "also" or "in addition to" or "in excess of". Examples: "This drink is too thick." "I'd like to be involved too." "this too is outdated and irrelevant." Two - "Two" is a number --> 2. Examples: "There's no two ways about it." "Two is the loneliest number that you'll ever know." "I've got two and that's two too many." Recap: "I'm getting too old to know if two is enough anymore."
