You’re vs. your

By Kasey Brown /LifeatStart.com Reporter

English has many rules regarding correct grammar usage.

One of the most common mistakes in the English language is the incorrect use of the words you’re and your. If you don’t know how to use them correctly here’s a guide to using them.

You’re is a a shorter way of saying you are. You use you’re when you are describing something.
Ex. You’re very smart.

Your is a possessive adjective used when you want to say that something belongs to someone.
Ex. That is your pen.

Hopefully this cleared up any confusion you may have trying to use these two words.
