2. your = possessive form of "your"
you're= you are

Ex."You're one funny guy," is correct. "Your one funny guy," is incorrect.

3. loose = not tight-fitting
lose = to fail to win

Ex. "She will lose in the final," is correct. "She will loose in the final," is incorrect.

Thank you so much for posting the above. Also, please to your list "Then and "Than". I can't believe that people do not know when to use "your and you're that blows my mind. Grant it, I am not an expert of the English language but what you have posted is basic English.

Right on.

Not to be rude, but you should try speaking the other languages that people on this board speak for your (and my) benefit.

just as a note here, i am american, despite the flag on your left - so i do know where you are coming from.

however, if you're speaking to the english speaking folks out there, then be my guest and go ahead - you would think that for people that claim that english is their first language, it wouldn't be that bad.

btw - add to the list, their vs. they're vs. there thanx

Lindsay Davenport - Anna Smashnova - Lisa Raymond - Sandrine Testud - Paola Suarez - Amelie Mauresmo - Virginia Ruano-Pascual - Nadia Petrova - Chanda Rubin - Cara Black - Tathiana Garbin - Anne Kremer - Monica Seles - Fabiola Zuluaga - Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo - Amanda Coetzer - Rita Grande - Meghann Shaughnessy - Magui Serna - Nathalie Dechy - Kim Clijsters - Elena Tatarkova - Maria Sharapova - Alicia Molik - Julia Vakulenko - Elena Likhovtseva - Anastasia Myskina - Emilie Loit
