1 Adjectifs possessifs et pronoms possessifs

Masculine (singular) Feminine Plural Beg. with vowel Mon Ma Mes Ton Ta Tes Son Sa Ses Notre Nos Votre Vos Leur Leurs

3 RULES… Adjectifs possessifs are mon , ton, son i.e. my, your, her, his, our, and their. It Indicates possession and is always replaced by a noun. Exemple :- Ce sont les copains de sarah. (These are the classmates of sarah.) Ce sont ses copains. (these are his/her classmates.) C’est le chien de marc et pierre. (this is the dog of marc and pierre.) C’est leur chien. (this is their dog.)

4 When feminine noun begins with a vowel, the masculine adjective is used to avoid clashes of vowels. e.g. Mon horloge (my clock) Son amie (Her/His friend) While describing a noun, possessive adjective must be used in front of each one. e.g. Son frère et sa sœur. (his brother and sister)

Masculine (singular) Feminine Masculine (plural) Feminine (Plural) Le mien La mienne Les miens Les miennes Le tien La tienne Les tiens Les tiennes Le sien La sienne Les siens Les siennes Le nôtre La nôtre Les nôtres Le vôtre La vôtre Les vôtres Le leur La leur Les leurs

6 RULES.. Possessif pronoms le mien, le tien, le sien etc. are mine, yours, his/her, our, yours and theirs. Possessif pronoms agree with the things possessed not with the possessor. They are always preceded by the definite articles i.e. le, la and les. There is a circumflex ‘ ^ ’ on the ‘o’ of notre and votre to distinguish them from the possessif adjectifs . If there is a preposition ‘ à ’ or ‘ de ’ proceeding the possessif pronoms it will contradict with the article acc. to the rule i.e. 1. à + le = au 2. à +les = aux

7 . 3. de + les = des 4. de + le = du Exemples:
Je parle de mon voyage et il parle du sien. (I speak about my trip and he speaks about his.) Cette tasse, c’est la tienne ou la mienne? (this cup, is it your or mine) .

8 Différence… Possessive adjectifs are the words used in place of articles to indicate to whom or to what something belong. It indicate the things it possessed, where as, possessive pronoms are the words which replace noun modified by the possessif adjectifs. Following are the examples in which difference as well as use of both can be seen : Elle ressemble à son père, ressembles-tu au tien. (She resembles his father, do you resemble yours) Je vois ton frère, mais le mien n’est pas encore arrivé. (I see your brother, but mine hasn’t arrive yet.)
