If you are asking about English "their" versus "they're", then I think the most important thing to talk about is the function, not just the word meaning.


"are" is a verb, which is required for every complete sentence.


When someone mistakenly says "Their wrong", or the like, then he or she has completely omitted a verb from his or her sentence.

Think of "they're" as a subject and a verb... they are...

"They are wrong." has a subject and a verb--so the contraction is they're.


Think of the pronoun 'their' as an adjective that you can find by asking the question "whose?"

They lost their jackets

They lost (whose?) jackets.
