4 © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.3A.2-4 In French, unlike English, possessive adjectives agree in gender and number with the nouns they modify. Note that notre, votre, and leur agree in number only.

5 3A.2-5 The masculine singular forms mon, ton, and son are used with feminine singular nouns that begin with a vowel sound. The choice of son, sa, and ses depends on the gender and number of the noun possessed, not the gender and number of the owner. Context usually makes the meaning clear. © 2015 by Vista Higher Learning, Inc. All rights reserved.
