Second Lesson : Common Error ( Kesalahan Biasa )
June 1, 2006
What’s the difference between you’re and your?
I hope you’re well.
(saya harap awak dalam keadaan baik)
Don’t forget your coat.
(Jangan lupa awak punya kot)
“You’re” is always a contraction of “you are.” If you’ve written “you’re,” try substituting “you are.” If it doesn’t work, the word you want is “your.” Your writing will improve if you’re careful about this.
If someone thanks you, write back “you’re welcome” for “you are welcome.”
What’s the difference between it’s and its?
It’s my coat.
The dog buried its bone.
What’s the difference between who’s and whose?
Who’s your best friend?
Whose coat is this?
“Who’s” always and forever means only “who is,” as in “Who’s that guy with the droopy mustache?” or “who has,” as in “Who’s been eating my porridge?” “Whose” is the possessive form of “who” and is used as follows: “Whose dirty socks are these on the breakfast table?”
What’s the difference between they’re and there and their?
They’re good friends.
There are some biscuits in the fridge.
Their coats are the same colour.
Please do ask/comment me for explaination if needed.
