Weekly Grammar Tip: your/you’re

What’s the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’?

YOU’RE is the contraction of ‘you are’, which is a state of being, for example: ‘You’re a really awesome friend’ and ‘I can’t believe you’re not eating that chocolate’.

YOUR implies ownership, for example: ‘Your shoes are adorable’ and ‘Is that your book?’

YOU’RE a great chef, I especially like YOUR chocolate mousse!
