Actually yes you are right it is a spelling mistake. You should PM KingKenny if you would like this changed.


I don't know ... people really have too much time on their hands. ;)

Hey Barry,
I don't know how to do all this fancy stuff with quotes,but surely
"so you think your clever" should read "so you think you're clever" ??;)

Barry Paul
-7th November 2003, 12:46

Just stick up for Barry here and the word 'your' has come into the English language as a full word version of the contraction 'your' meaning 'you are'. So in short 'your' is fine!!!

Gav
-7th November 2003, 14:57
Uk_45: you are confusing 'your' with 'you're'. I can't remember the proper grammatical terms but they are very different [youris possesive?]. The latter is the contraction not the former!

uk_45
-7th November 2003, 15:03
Yeah but I 90% sure that your has become acceptable as a posseive although it isn't grammatically correct. My brains overheating now!!!!!!! <runs and gets a Fire Extinguisher>

No one has yet e mailed me (barry@leonpaul.com) the mistake on our home page:

"Your" is the correct spelling of the possessive "belonging to you" as in "your place or mine".
"You're" is a contraction of "you are", the apostrophe denoting a missing letter or letters. Hence "You're going to your house".

As a new user I had noticed that the whole system seems to be dominated by American spellings.

As a linguist I know that a living language is one which evolves. Unless we want it to end up dead like Latin we should not complain about the changes. On the other hand I hate americanisms.... You betcha!!
