Another grammar question

It's vs Its. I always get confused about this one so half the time I guess and the other half I write out "it is". Set me straight Mamie and other grammar.

My grammar pet peeve is spelling. I know I can type fast and mess up, but when I see it, I correct it. FB kills me all the time with this!

Re: Another grammar question

  • It's is a contraction for "it is" ---> "It's really warm today!"

    Its is the posessive of "it" ---> "The dog is ignoring its food." (That is a bad example because you would probably say "his" or "her" food, not "its," but that is the correct use of it.)

  • SBS is correct (of course). This is another one of my pet peeves (but really...wasn't isn't at this point?).  

    another example including both:

    It's puzzling how the chair is sitting on its side.

  • Ditto the ladies above. Basically, if you can substitute "it is", then you can contract it to it's. Otherwise, no apostrophe.
    We have so much time, and so little to do! Strike that, reverse it.

  • On a related note, people mess this up with who's and whose a lot.  I remember seeing this on a huge billboard at Dodger Stadium, like "Whose your favorite team?" or something like that.

    Whose starts to look really weird when you type it that many times.
