    Words there vs their

    I have read many a book and seen the word their. Yet it isnt in my dictionary (Visual Thesurus). Yet the word there is always there. Did I really see the word (their) and if I did whats the difference between their and there?

    Re: Words there vs their

    This is from

    their –pronoun
    1. a form of the possessive case of they used as an attributive adjective, before a noun: their home; their rights as citizens; their departure for Rome.

    2. (used after an indefinite singular antecedent in place of the definite masculine form his or the definite feminine form her): Someone left their book on the table. Did everyone bring their lunch?
