I saw a grammar chart earlier today stating 'theris' is a third person plural possessive pronoun. I've never seen this word used.

  • I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is almost certainly quoting a typo. – Edwin Ashworth May 30 '15 at 13:03

That almost certainly was a typo for "theirs".


There's no such word. Theirs, not theris.
