Possessive Adjectives Possessive Pronouns ’s or ’
Possessive adjectives are used to express the idea of belonging and possession. My house means the house belonging to me, Your homework means the homework you are doing. We use possessive adjectives before nouns: my bookhis examtheir car
Possessive pronouns are also used to express possession and similar meanings. Notice these rules about possessive pronouns: 1. A possessive pronoun replaces a possessive adjective and a noun.. This is not my book. Mine is green. 2. Do not use its as a possessive pronoun. 3. A noun never follows a possessive pronoun.
Possessive Adjectives Possessive Pronouns Examples mymineThis is not my pen. Mine is red. your (singular)yours (singular)That isn’t your book. Yours is in the drawer. his I’m not using his eraser. His is on the desk. herhersWe don’t have her dress. Hers is in the closet. itsThe dog has got its food. ouroursThis isn’t our classroom. Ours is there. your (plural)yours (plural)These are your tickets. They are yours. theirtheirsThat is their house. It is theirs.
We add ’s or ’ to show possession.. We use ’s with singular nouns or names. Examples: I went to Sam’s house. This is my friend’s garden.. We use ’ with plural nouns that end with s. Example: She borrowed her parents’ car.. We use ’s with plural nouns that do not end with s: Example: The children’s ball is over there. Many people’s jobs are difficult. Note: We add ’s to the last noun of a phrase. For example, Fatima is Sara and Deena’s mother.
