Your welcome or You’re welcome?
Which one is it? YOUR welcome? or YOU’RE welcome? I see this a lot, especially when I’m reading blogs.
There’s only one right answer, though. Do YOU know which one it is?
YOUR is a possessive pronoun. There is nothing possessive in YOUR welcome so you can’t use it in this instance.
The correct answer is YOU’RE welcome. YOU’RE is a contraction for YOU ARE and the technical phrase is YOU ARE WELCOME. Therefore, the second choice is the only one that can be correct.
If you didn’t know the right answer, YOU’RE WELCOME for this post! 😉
