1 Possessive Pronouns/Adjectives
2011 – German 1

2 What are they? Used to show possession/ownership of a person, place, or thing. A possessive is ALWAYS followed by a noun! In English: My, your, his, her, their, and our

3 Examples: My dog Our cat Their classes His pants Her attitude

4 What are they in German? They coincide with pronouns on chart:
mein/e -my unser/unsre -our dein/e-your euer / eure-your ihr /e - their Ihr/e - your ihr/e – her sein/e - his

5 Usage: When you use possessives you will either use the base form or add an –e to the end of the possessive. How do you know which to use? IF your noun that follows it is a feminine or a plural noun, you add an –E If your noun is a der or a das word, it remains the same.

6 Examples: meine Mutter unser Bruder seine Schwester ihre Oma
eure Geschwister

7 A couple other words: There are two other words that work the EXACT same way as possessives. ein and kein – a and no/none Examples: A dog – ein Hund No cat – keine Katze
