Can you tell me about pronouns? What are pronouns? They are words that replace nouns and noun phrases!

Now, what are “Possessive pronouns?” They are pronouns that refer to ownership! In other words, “Who does something belong to?”

Do not place possessive pronouns before the noun!

Possessive pronouns go after the noun or in place of the noun!

The possessive pronouns include “Mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs.” They are quite useful when searching for a short answer to a question.

The following are Possessive Pronoun Examples:

Does this book belong to Sally?

Is this your drink on the table?

No, it is yours!

Does that red car belong to Mike?

Yes, it is his!

Yes, it is hers!

The dog carried its puppy all day!

Does this cat belong to your family?

“It is hers!” “Compare to,” “It is her car!”

“It is ours!” “Compare to,” “It is our car!”

Possessive Pronouns Everyday Dialog.

Possessive pronouns go
“after the noun” or
“in place of the noun.”
The possessive pronouns include;
“Mine, yours, his, hers,
it’s, ours and theirs.”
Possessive pronouns are
quite useful when searching
for a short
answer to a question.
Here are some examples.
Can you find them?
Does this book
belong to Sally?
No, it’s mine! So.
Possessive pronoun “mine.”
I could say:
No. This book is mine.
I could say: No, it is
my book.
In this case.
I’m using a very short
statement. A short
sentence which is how
most people talk.
Is this your drink
on the table?
No it’s, it’s yours.
You see? I could say:
It’s “yours.” But that’s
not what we’re working on today.
Hey! Does that red
car belong to Mike?
Yes, it’s “his.”
That is a
possessive pronoun.
Is this mobile phone Sally’s?
Yes, it’s hers.
“Hers” is your pronoun.
Hey! The dog carried its
puppy all day.
Does this cat
belong to your family?
Yes, it is ours.
“Ours” is your pronoun.
Is this drink mine?
Yes it is “yours.”
Does this computer
belong to your parents?
Yes it is “theirs.”
Possessive pronoun and
possessive adjectives!
Now, watch carefully because
this gets a little tricky.
“It is mine.”
That is your possessive
pronoun. Right?
Compare to; It is “my” car.
That’s a possessive adjective.
Because “my” goes
before the noun.
Do not say “mine car.”
Don’t do that.
So. We have different ways
to refer to
things people etc.
In this case.
“My” is an adjective.
Possessive adjective.
“Mine” is a possessive pronoun.
“It is yours.”
Compare to; It is
“your” car.
The same example.
It is “his.”
Compared to; It is
“his” car.
That can be both a
possessive pronoun
and a possessive adjective.
Just remember!
The “adjective” goes
“before” the noun
and the “pronoun” goes “after.”
It is “hers”
compare to;
“It is her car.”
“It is “ours”
compare to;
“Our car.”
It is “theirs”
compare to;
It is “their” car. So.
“Theirs” is the
possessive pronoun. And
“their,” “their car,”
“their” is the possessive adjective.
Because it goes
before the noun.
Don’t forget!
Possessive adjectives go
before the noun
and possessive
pronouns go after!
