You are. What are you? You are bright. You are funny. You are making yourself look like a nana with your incorrect use of the word your in place of YOU ARE.

YOUR - belonging to you.

Can I please wear your Captain Hook outfit to work tomorrow?
Your nose looks thinner since I saw you last Spring.

These are correct!


Now what about:

Your special.”

Wrong!

Your special what?

Your special recipe for koeksisters? Your special friend looks like a man? What?

YOUR means “belonging to you”, finish en klaar.

You are special can be shortened with an apostrophe, like this:

YOURE special.

Now that makes sense!

You’re adorable, you’re so clever. you’re so strong.

Yes! Correct.


Let’s recap:

YOUR = Something that belongs to you.

YOURE = You are.
