    English 101

    I know this will get looked down on, and there is no such thing as proper english on the internets buuuuuuuuuuut:


    You're is as in You are. For example: You're banned.

    Your as in yourself. For example: Your paper has a lot of mistakes on it.

    Their as Them. For example: It was theirs.

    They're are as in They are. For example: They're going to ban you.

    There as in place. If you go there, they're going to ban you.

    Then as in time. For example: I was banned back then.

    Than in comparison. My E-peen is bigger than yours.

    Worse is comparative. You are worse than me.

    Worst is superlative. You are the worst!


    I think thats about all of them.

    I mess up "then" and "than" too much, but other than that, it's usually fine.

    Just because "should've" sounds like "should of", it doesn't mean you can write it out like that. It's "should've" or "should have".

    I said should too much and it stopped looking like a word, and now I'm paranoid that I spelled it wrong. ; ;
