Are you smart enough to have your vocabulary running perfect all the time? If you think you already know all the basics, think twice. You could be one of those who are guilty of spelling it the wrong way. Check out these commonly misspelled english words and see which of these victims you are guilty of wrecking (I only mean spelling incorrectly :))
There are tons of blogs, news, and articles around the web. Social Medias are no exemption. And I can’t help but notice a lot of mistakes when reading some of them. Hey, don’t get me wrong. I’m neither an expert nor a perfect English writer but I can’t help but notice some really simple English glitches that I believe we shouldn’t be committing. You might get surprised with their simplicity once you get to read my list. So better not commit any.
Wrong: I met our new professor and its a pleasure to know him
Wrong: Every car has it’s own design
The term its is a possessive pronoun (which means it belongs to the subject of the sentence) while it’s is a shortened word for it is or it has.
Tip: If the sentence doesn’t sound right if you replaced it’s with it is or it has, then you’re composition is more likely incorrect. Use its instead.
Wrong: Their the best team in the league.
Wrong: I would have to bring my Cousins and they’re pets to the vacation house.
Their refers to a third person plural that is used to describe something that belongs to them. See the second (Wrong) example sentence. The subject “Cousins” is a third person plural possessive adjective, therefore their is the more appropriate term to use.
They’re is a contraction which means it’s a shortened term for They are.
Tip: If you tried to replace they’re with they are and didn’t sound quite nice, use their instead.
Wrong: More than 50% of the class failed and your one of them.
Wrong: Don’t forget to bring you’re lunch.
Your is a possessive adjective and it describes something that belongs to the second person. Your is more often followed by a noun (e.g.: your key, your gadget, your choice).
You’re is another contraction. A combination of you and are.
Tip: If the sentence sounds well by interchanging you are and you’re, then proceed using either. If not, use your.
I wasn’t supposed to include this in this blog but a recent email cracked me up so I decided to add it. I have no tips either than to emphatically let you know that the correct spelling is RECEIVE and/or RECEIVED. Yes you’ve read that right.
