Write the Right Word: There, Their, They’re

Even though “there,” “their” and “they’re” sound the same, they don't have the same meaning, and they cannot be used interchangeably.

  • There - indicates a place. For example: Are we there yet?
  • Their – a word to show something belongs to someone. For example: The cows in the small pen are their cattle.
  • They’re – a contraction for “they are.” For example: They’re going to start the wheat harvest tomorrow.
