'they're', 'their' und 'there'
Weil sie gleich ausgesprochen werden, werden they're, their und there gelegentlich durcheinandergebracht. Dabei haben alle drei Wörter ganz unterschiedliche Bedeutungen: • they're ist eine Kurzform von they are • their ist ein adjektivisches Possessivpronomen und bedeutet ihr(e) usw. • there ist ein Adverb mit der Bedeutung dort, dorthin; es wird auch in Ausdrücken wie there is oder there are verwendet (= es gibt, es sind)
Adjektivische Possessivpronomen nach unbestimmten Pronomen und geschlechtsneutralen Substantiven
Nach unbestimmten Pronomen und geschlechtsneutralen Substantiven kann man als adjektivisches Possessivpronomen entweder his or her (etwas umständlich und in der Häufung stilistisch unschön) oder their (grammatikalisch unlogisch, aber stilistisch durchaus akzeptabel) verwenden.
Wortstellung von 'a / an' bei Entsprechungen für "ein eigener" etc.
Die üblichen englischen Entsprechungen von ein eigener / eine eigene / ein eigenes usw. lauten: • a / an + Substantiv + of my / your / his/ her / its / our / their own • my / your / his / her / its / our / their own + Substantiv
Knifflige Einzelfälle
Die Gefahr der falschen Verwendung besteht insbesondere bei it's – its, you're – your, who's – whose und they're – their – there
