[1913 Webster]


Their \Their\, pron. & a. [OE. thair, fr. Icel. [thorn]eirra,
[thorn]eira, of them, but properly gen. pl. of the definite
article; akin to AS. [eth][=a]ra, [eth][=ae]ra, gen. pl. of
the definite article, or fr. AS. [eth][=ae]ra, influenced by
the Scandinavian use. See {That}.]
The possessive case of the personal pronoun they; as, their
houses; their country.

cultivated.

'Twixt our best actions and the worst of theirs.

substantively. --Chaucer.
[1913 Webster]

I stand to answer thee,
Or any he, the proudest of thy sort. --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

feminine or neuter noun, or to one in the plural, as
well as to noun in the masculine singular. In
composition, he denotes a male animal; as, a he-goat.
[1913 Webster]
