Presentation on theme: "POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES"— Presentation transcript:

There are 2 ways to express possession in English. Use ‘s to show an item belongs to a specific person Ex. Maria’s sweater 2. Use a possessive adjective Ex. my sweater Instead of adding ‘s to the owner, Spanish uses this formula: Possession + de + owner Ex. El suéter de Maria

My – mi, mis Your (fam.s.)- tu, tus Your (Form.s.)- su, sus His, her, its, their- su, sus Our – nuestro, nuestra, nuestros, nuestras Your ( – vuestro, vuestra, vuestros, vuestras Your ( – su, sus

3 Examples: His book – su libro His books – sus libros
Our book – nuestro libro Our books – nuestros libros Therefore, su libro could mean his book, her book, their book or your book. Of course, Spanish has a way to specify each of these!

Es la chaqueta de ellos. It’s their jacket. Es la falda de ti. It’s your skirt. You can use nouns or names in this fashion ,too! Ex. Es el libro de Sra. Lilly
