    What is the difference between "there," "their" and "they're"? Homonyms are great until you grab a pencil or a keyboard.

    "their" is used to show possesion (their car, their dog,) "there" is to show where something is (where'e the book? Over there. ~There is where I fell down,) "they're" is another way of saying "they are," so you would use it to describe what something is (they're nice, they're right, they're the owners of this place) look at your "there"s again :) After that, there is some grammar. Ask again

    Are you a native speaker? If you read this sentence aloud, you will see that it twists around on itself in a couple of places. The basic structure is this, right? -- If . . . , then . . . (Although you need not necessarily explicitly include the "then." It is implied.) Within that structure you have embedded some other structures ( <something> is when . . . , because . . .) that do not work well within the overall framework of the "if/then" structure.
