Your versus You're
...is the possessive form of the word “you”.
The word “you're”... ... y-o-u-apostrophe-r-e... [hand points to the word you're]
...is a contraction of the words “you” and “are”.
Let's look at some examples. [A couple in a restaurant on a first date]
Say your date tells you that “Your face is handsome”…
…or, “Your meal looks delicious”…
…or, “Your fly is open.”
In these examples, your date is referring to stuff you have or own.
Your hair…your meal…your fly. [Hand points to man's hair, meal and trouser fly]
Your date then switches gears a tad, and says…
“You’re even better looking in person”…
…or, “You’re kicking my leg under the table”… [Man kicks a girl's leg under the table]
…or, “You’re picking up the check, right?”
In these examples, the words “you” and “are” have been smashed together to form
the contraction “you're”.
So, just remember, y-o-u-r is the possessive form of “you”...
...and “you're” with an apostrophe is a contraction of the words “you” and “are”.
And now that you're familiar with this grammar rule... [A couple standing by a log fire]
…you’ll be sure to earn that second date you’re hoping for. [Man gives flowers to a woman and woman gives man a pop quiz]
Fingers crossed the pop quiz she gives you is open book…
