Word Choice : Your and You're

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Assalamualaikum and hello!

Here is another simple English class in continuation of my first Word Choice series. I hope everyone has finally decided whether to bare themselves or not ;)

Lately, I kept seeing people replying a gratitude comment with YOUR WELCOME. This is very wrong, take note my fellow Malaysians. Here's how you should say it :

"Thanks for helping me!"
"Your welcome babe, small matter!"
absobloodylutely WRONG. What is your welcome anyway? Care to explain?

YOUR means "it belongs to you". 
For example : is this YOUR pen?

instead, the right way is :

"Thank you so much for your assistance"
"You're welcome"
You're is another way of saying YOU ARE. That apostrophe is not there as an accessory.
