Possessive Adjectives Adjectives DESCRIBE nouns, correct? Well, in Spanish they can also show POSSESSION.
Possessive Adjectives Here are the possessive adjectives in English: my, your, his, her, our(s), and their(s).

The possessive adjectives in Spanish! *Possessive adjectives show ownership or relationship between people. - They are placed BEFORE the noun.
Posessive Adjectives singular 1. mi / mis-my 2. tu / tus- your 3. su / sus- his,her or your (form.) plural 4. nuestro (a, os, as )- our 5. vuestro (a, os, as)- you and you (inform.) 6. su / sus- their or y’alls
In English, the possessive adjectives his, her, and their tell whether something belongs to a male, a female, or more than one person. In Spanish, the possessive adjective su has many possible meanings (his, her, its, your, their). Context usually makes the meaning clear. su

Possessive Adjectives The possessive adjective must be singular if the noun is singular and plural if the noun is plural. *While possessive adjectives refer to the owner, their form agrees in gender and number with the noun that comes AFTER them!!!!
Mi prima es alta. Todas mis primas son altas.
Posessive Adjectives ¿Son rubios los hermanos de Rafael? No, sus hermanos son morenos.

Showing Posession You must say, “The dog of Jorge,” only in Spanish. Like this: El perro de Jorge.
De + noun (pronoun) This concept of showing possession is using “de + noun.” For example:
De + Noun La hermana de María es amable. Ella es la madre de él.
Su and Sus can take the place of a phrase with “de + person” ¿De dónde es el padre de Juan? Su padre es de Venezuela.
