SPELLING RULES: your / you're

  • your

  • Where has your leg gone?

  • Is That  your monster.

you're  you and are 'combination' called a contraction

  • Do you know what planet  you're from? - (you know because you are from there. )

  • You're a big idiot. (You are a big silly stupid idiot)

Hopefully now you will never forget with our top spelling tips.

Your is in a gang of words called the 'absolute possessives'. Other words in the gang are his, hers and ours,). No one in this gang use apostrophes. This rule is 100% true all the time.

Within formal writing contracted apostrophes should not be used,
I.e shouldn't ~ you're. This will benefit people that get the rule wrong as it leaves out the you're as an option and leaves you are or your as the only correct option.
