Using Words Correctly 1
Some words sound similar but mean different things:
- its, it's: Its shows ownership. It's means "it is" or "it has."
It's weird to make an olive sandwich. I don't like its smell.
- their, they're, there: Their shows ownership. They're means "they are." There refers to location.
Why put olives there. They're too salty. Their flavor is odd.
- to, two, too: To shows movement toward something. Two means "2." Too means "very" or "also."
I'll give my olive sandwich to my two cousins. They like pickle sandwiches, too.
