A- A A+


      Homophones are confusing. But don’t cry: os native speakers de English confundem homophones too!

YOUR x YOU’RE

YOUR – Possessive

Eg:  Your name is… Mariana!!
         Pode tirar your car da frente da my garage, please?

YOU’RE – Contraction de YOU ARE

Eg:  You’re my best friend. (=You are my best friend)
         You’re so beautiful today! (=You are so beautiful today!)

      Ficou confuse? Eles também ficam. Olha só a mistake que encontramos em um forum de discussion entre natives:

“All US school systems are different (…)  if your trying to avoid the kids”

      Aqui o correct seria usar ‘you’re‘ ou ‘you are‘ , not your.
