該用 their, they're 或是 there 呢?
我在美國擔任前檯經理時 我時常必須要糾正一些以英語為母語的美國人 相信我 大多數美國人的英語是

there.jpg

非常簡陋

甚至可以說是膚淺的 他們的高中生 大學生 的字彙量極低 文法一竅不通 所以寫作錯誤連篇 從現在開始我

會撰寫一些英語常犯錯誤 這些錯誤不論你是否以英語為母語 都是要謹慎避免的陷阱

they're, their  和 there 這三個詞往往被錯誤使用,即使是以英語為母語的人士都無法避免。其實只要使用一點小技巧,它們並不難了解 以下是其正確的使用時機。


 they're 是 they are 的縮寫 例如 They are identical twins. 他們是同卵雙包胎


 就如同 his (he), her (she), its (it) 和 my (I)一樣, Their 是they 的所有格:

All students in this class brought their own laptops. 這個班上的所有學生都攜帶他們自己的筆記型電腦。

There 則是一個副詞表 "在那邊 在那個地方
"。你可以把它作為一個問題的答案“在哪裡?”。下面是一些例句:


Call me as soon as you get there. 當你一到達那邊時馬上打電話給我。

這裡有一個句子包含了所有我所談到的三個字,你知道這句話究竟是什麼意義思呢?

They’re going to move there with all their families. 他們將與所有他們的家人搬到那兒去.

They're, their and there are 3 words often used incorrectly (even by native English speakers). Again, it’s not very difficult to remember which is correct when.

First of all, "they’re" is the short form of "they are", for example:

They are identical twins = They're identical twins.


Just like his, her, its or my, "their" is a possessive form of "they" :

All students in this class brought their own laptops.

Lastly, "there" is an adverb meaning "in that place". Below are some sample sentences:

Call me as soon as you get there. 

Here’s a sentence with all the 3 words I just mentioned. Do you know what this sentence mean excatly?

They’re going to move there with all their families.
