There vs Their vs They're

  1. Use there to refer to a physical or abstract place. Usually, if you can replace there with here in the same sentence, and it still makes sense, then you are using it correctly.
  2. Use they're as a contraction for they are. Usually, if you can replace they're with they are in the same sentence, and it still makes sense, then you are using it correctly.
  3. Use their to show possession, commonly followed by a noun. Usually, if you can replace their with our in the same sentence, and it still makes sense, then you are using it correctly.

Examples:

"We are going over there to eat."

"We are going over here to eat."

"They're coming over for dinner."

"They are coming over for dinner."

"Their dog is pretty awesome."

"Our dog is pretty awesome."

  1. Affect(v.) means "to influence"
