You’re Your!

If someone asked whether I thought grammar and funny could go hand in hand, I would say no. But alas, grammar can be hilarious if you’re not the one who messed up! Common mistakes with the words your and you’re are the biggest violators.  So what’s the difference?

The word your usually parks itself in front of a noun or pronoun to show possession. For example: Nicolas will pass on your questions today.

Now, the word you’re is a contraction for you are. This rule is nonnegotiable. If you cannot write it out as you are in a sentence, then you’re wrong! (Ha, get it?)
For example: You’re quite a silly rabbit.
