There definition, in or at that place (opposed to here): She is there now. See more. The words there and their are often confused and misused because they are homophones (they sound alike). A good way to remember the difference between the there and their is to remember — Here with a T is there; so it refers to a place.. While there refers to a place, their means belonging to, or associated with, a group of people (., their clothes — clothes that belonged to them).
