During my time at Wayzata High School, I have seen a countless number of people use the incorrect form of “your”. I take personal offense when I hear the incorrect form used because it is plain wrong and this shouldn’t be happening in HIGH SCHOOL. “Your” is the second person possessive adjective, used to describe something as belonging to you. “Your”is always followed by a noun or gerund. “You’re is the contraction of “you are” and is often followed by the present participle. So next time you comment on someone’s instagram photo, say “you’re pretty” instead of “your pretty ”.
