2/ Grammar Practice

Possessive adjectives, also called possessive determiners, are words used in place of articles, to show ownership or relationships between people. They are placed before the noun in a sentence. Possessive adjectives refer to the owner. There are different forms depending on whether the noun is singular or plural:

Singular: My, Your, His, Her, Its

Plural: Our, Your, Their

We go from subject pronoun to possessive adjective (also known as possessive determiner):

I > my

You > your

He > his

She > her

It > its

We > our

You > your

They > their

Be careful with the spelling of “its”, to not be confused with the contracted form of the verb to be: “it’s” (it is). They are two different things!

Notice how “their”, “they’re” and “there” are all three pronounced identically.
