Such a confusing trio of words!

They're sound- a-likes

Each has their own meaning and use.

There is my thought for today! silly asit seems, it's my thought.

The Your and You're drives me the most insane because it sounds the same out loud but when you read it you read the apostrophe and its like "Ahhh!!!!!"

wanted to post again and say that I HATE when people people say "Oh I seen that to!" when it should be "Oh, I have seen (or I SAW) that too" I have a friend that I text a lot and she uses 'seen' ALL the time when it should be saw.

I live in the South now.  There's not limit to the words these people try to combine or use wrong.  My favorites are "I might could do that" and "What are you'uns doin'?

It bothers me when people pronounce library, libary. They forget the first R.
