Anonymous:Hello. I have a question regarding a sentence that I was writing recently and my writing software corrected the use of my word "there" to "their". I am wondering if the software was correct. Here is my sentence. Is there someone that you would recommend? Is the correct word to use here is there or their?
I can't imagine why it would "correct" it to "their."

You have to realize that software isn't perfect - it can only provide HELP.
BUT - you were right - so no worries!
I've made a simple/short video about this EXACT topic...
check it out here - it gives some simple examples to always help you remember!
Anonymous:Hi, I just want to ask you about something from the begining of your video.
You said that you're going to talk about "homonyms" but then the whole lesson is about the homophones, isn't it?
I think the definition of homonyms is that their spelling is the same and also the pronunciation but they have different meaning. e.g. kind - kind
Sorry if I missed something important, but I had to write you this.
Your lectures are sure helpful, but careful about those little details which might be confusing for somebody...
With best wishes

Thank you Petra!
You've raised an excellent point.
Anonymous:by rule there is used as a verb to describe, while their is used as ownership, so there would be the correct spelling
