  2. 2. Who’s, Whose; Theirs, There’s Week 1Two words which give problems are who’s and whose. They sound the same but mean different things.Who’s with an apostrophe is short for who is. If you want to ask ‘Who’s coming with me?’ or ‘Who’s going to tellhim?’ this is the one you use.It can also be short for who has, as in ‘Who’s let the cat out?’ It’s easier to remember this word by thinking of itsfull meaning – who is or who has – and this will also tell you when to use who’s and when to use whose.The second word – whose – means something belonging to someone.‘It’s the woman whose car is outside.’ Or ‘Whose book is this?’You use it in all situations like these. Remember that it’s a word in its own right, not two words combined, likewho’s – that way you shouldn’t get confused about them.There’s and theirs are also confusing.Theirs means simply something which belongs to them, as in ‘The party was theirs.’Think of whose and theirs together, the first (whose) asking a question about ownership, and the secondanswering it. ‘Whose is it?’ ‘It’s theirs’.There’s is short for there is or there has – as for example, in ‘There’s been an accident.’ Like who’s, it’s mucheasier to get right if you think of it as two words shortened to one.WHOSE WHO’S THEIRS THERE’S‘It’s all very well to say it’s t______,’ I said, ‘but t______ such a thing as responsibility. W____ going to pay forit? If it’s t_____ t_____ no reason why they shouldn’t.’‘I don’t know w______ it is,’ he said, ‘and there’s no need to take it out on me.’‘If it’s t______,’ I said, ‘they’ve got to move it, and if it it isn’t, we’ve got to find out w_____ it is. T_____ nomore to be said,’ I said. Well, today it has gone – and we still don’t know if it was t_____, or w_____ it was, orw_____ paid to move it. T_______ something funny going on … 2
  3. 3. Week 2 YOUR, YOURE Its easy to get muddled about your and youre - but they are really quite different. The first one shows that something belongs to you, (possessive) as in your money or your life. The robber meant business! ‘Give me your money or your life!’ he shouted to the owner of the house. YOUR Youre, on the other hand, is a shorter version of you are. Try saying you are quickly a few times, and youll soon see how the a gradually disappears: its much easier to say youre than you are. Example: ‘You are an idiot!’ becomes ‘You’re an idiot!’ YOU’RE_____ a rat, Luigi. ______ face is gonna get changed, you bet your life. Not that_______ fit to live, Luigi. When the boss hears of ______ mistakes, ______ a deadparrot. It’d be sad if all ______ windows got broken, wouldnt it? But ______ notgonna put us to that trouble, are ya? ______ not worth the price of a brick, anyway.Dont get _____ library books renewed, Luigi, cos ______ not gonna get to readthem._______ bottle’s gone Luigi, and _______ gonna join it soon.

  6. 6. Week 4 HomophonesWords that sound the same but that are spelt differently are calledhomophones. The name comes from the Ancient Greek words: homos (same) phone (sound)If the wrong homophone is used a passage might be quite difficult to read, likethe one below. However, if you do manage to read it aloud (allowed!), otherpeople will be able to understand it perfectly. For example:I maid my weigh down the rode. Suddenly eye sore a wight hoarse. ”Ware are ewe off two?” aye asked “Too sea the see and watch the son go down.” “Isle come with yew,” I said. Sew, I court him and wee road together, wile the wind blue in hour hare.There are 25 homophones in that short passage. Can you find them and say howthe words should have been spelt?1. 20.2. 21.3. 22.4. 23.5. 24.6. 6
