Your versus You're
Your or You’re- I am so frustrated with this!!!! I can’t figure out what the difference is. When I type in your on Microsoft word it is okay, like it doesn’t mark it wrong or anything. Same thing when I type in you’re, so it is no help (the spellchecker) because both of them are still words.. they are not spelled wrong so I want to put “ Your the best friend a boy could have!” or “You’re the best friend a boy could have!” in my story. Can you tell me the difference so I know when to use which one?
You're is a contraction of you are. Your is a possessive pronoun. The possessive pronouns are: my, mine, our, ours, its, his, her, hers, their, theirs, your, yours, whose, and one's. They are all words that demonstrate ownership.
