Common mistake were're → we're

Common Mistake: were're

One of the most common mistakes in written English is the incorrect usage of "were're" instead of "we're".

The Correct Usage: we're

The contraction "we're" is short for "we are" and is used to indicate the plural form of the pronoun "we".

For example:

  • Incorrect: "We were're going to the party tonight."
  • Correct: "We're going to the party tonight."

As you can see, the incorrect usage of "were're" in the first example is grammatically incorrect. The correct contraction "we're" should be used to indicate the plural form of "we" in this context.

In the correct sentence, "We're going to the party tonight," the contraction "we're" replaces the phrase "we are". This makes the sentence more concise and easier to read.
