Their/there/they're and reign/rein

There are a lot of issues with these little words.  Just a quick refresher on the general differences!

There: a place or location as in "She is standing over there"or "Yes, we will meet there"

Their: generally indicating possession  Examples: "their coffee" or "their house"

They're: contraction for they are as in "They're going to the game."


Reign: to hold a royal office or hold influence/power over

Rein: to stop or slow down
