Question:

What is the difference between “there,” “they’re,” and “their”?

Sean S.
Answer:

“There” is most commonly used for placement, as in “over there.” “They’re” is a contraction of “they are” and is used when referring to a group in the third person. “Their” is possesive, meaning something belonging to a group in the third person.

Question:

Why does Gaston Leroux write some passages in italics when the rest is in regular font?

Sean S.
Answer:

The author uses italics to make certain passages stand out for dramatic effect. It makes it seem as if the character is speaking in a certain way, as if he or she wants the other person (and the reader) to listen very closely and understand what he or she is trying to say.

Subject: English as a Second Language

Question:

“That was a very interesting essay.” “I was interested in what he had to say.” What do these two questions tell you about how “interesting” and “interested” differ, even though they are both adjectives with the same root word?

Sean S.
Answer:

In the first sentence, “interesting” describes the essay and how the speaker feels about it; in the second sentence, “interested” describes the speaker and how he or she felt about what the other person had to say.
