Can you tell the difference?
Do you know the difference between words that sound the same, but are spelled differently? Do you know the difference between there, their, and they're? Do you know the rules of grammar? Do you teach English professionally? Are you what some would call a wordsmith? Are your friends amazed at your ability to place the right word where it belongs? Do you share your skills with others? Do you think you've got what it takes to ace this quiz? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, then this is the quiz for you!
The internet, texting, and spellcheck have enabled us to get a little lazy with our grammar skills. While helpful and easy, these things have also stopped us from practicing spelling skills the old school way and we sometimes struggle to remember words that are notoriously easy to spell. If you're good with words in today's technical age, pat yourself on the back—the skill is getting harder and harder to master.
Some of us, however, still view the English language as art and are voracious readers and writers. We think language is pretty cool and some of us even want to pass that knowledge down to future generations.
So, how well do you know the difference between there, their and they're anyway? Let's find out! If you are either a teacher, or someone who just loves words, sit back, relax, and flex your mental muscles to see just how well you do when asked to place those words correctly in each sentence. Good luck!
