1 Do not confuse their and there: their is a possessive determiner, used for example in they all tried to hide their faces and said nothing, while there is an adverb of place or position, as in I took a trip up there last week, and is used in phrases such as there is/are: we are aware there are problems. 2 On the use of their in the singular to mean ‘his or her’, see they (usage).
