Default Don't mind me but....

I'm a huge stickler for grammar. So....

They're = they are (pl. form + verb "to be")

Their = pl. possessive

There = refers to a location

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

To -- a part of an infinitive verb

two -- the number two

too -- means also, as well, etc.


Sorry, this isn't meant to sound mean, but nothing irks me more when I see these mixed up and confused. I know this is a message board, but that doesn't mean we must forget rules we learned in grade 4.

Than is used in comparitive statements.

Then deals with events.

"I'd rather watch monkey porn than Paris Hilton's reality show"

"I went for beers. Then I passed out."

Then you would use than rather then then. It's only then you'll get the correct use, rather than using it then.
