You're vs. Your

Even though you're and your sound the same, they mean two very different things.

You're is actually a contraction of "you are," as in "You're cute" (or "You are cute"). Contractions like this are especially common in spoken English.

Your is a possessive adjective. It describes a noun by telling us to whom it belongs, as in, "I love your new dress!" (The dress belongs to you.) Other possessive adjectives are: my, his, her, their, and our.

A good way to make sure that you are using the correct one is to replace the word you're not sure about with "you are." If the sentence still makes sense, use you're. If it doesn't, use your.
