English[edit]

Contraction[edit]

They're

  1. An archaic spelling of there or their, outdated and now only used by Grammar Nazis, English teachers, and people with more than one brain cell.

Etymology[edit]

"They're" originally spawned as a contraction of they are. Theyre is a contraction of "they're", and there is a contraction of "theyre". Of course Y's and words ending in E are Olde English, so "theyre" can also be modernized into their.
