This has got to be one of the hardest questions ever! Usually when I want to know if something is right or not, I just say it in my head. If it sounds right, then I figure its probably right. So there and their is hard because they both sound exactly the same. I really need to know which is which because they are real common, I use them all the time. I usually kind of put whichever and hope for the best, but I am writing a book and I need the grammar to be good. Can anybody out there/their help?
'Their' will always be a possessive. It's usually followed closely by a noun.
If you want to indicate a location, use 'there'.
There it is
Did you put it there?
Is there a time when we can meet. (location in time)
Then there is 'they're'
This is a contraction meaning 'they are'
They're coming this afternoon.
