Learn English > English lessons and exercises > English test #69581: There/They're/Their
English speakers occasionally confuse the words there, their and they're as they sound much the same when spoken. Their meanings, however, are very different - as suggested below.
'There' means 'in that place.'
'Their' indicates ownership as in, for example, 'their books' or 'their house'.
'They're' is simply a spoken abbreviation for 'They are'. Such abbreviations are widely used in spoken English.
The following exercise presents an imaginary conversation between a mother and her son who has lost his gloves.
