Possessive Pronoun

Grammar Index : 2


We use the Possessive Pronoun when we want to substitute a group of words that are indicating a possession relation.


Subject Possessive
I Mine
You Yours
He His
She Hers
It Its
We Ours
You Yours
They Theirs




For example :


  • This is my book.


    In this example, we can substitute my book for the possessive pronoun mine.


  • This is mine.


  • This is your disk and that's mine.


    Mine substitutes the word disk and shows that it belongs to me.


  • The smallest gift is mine.


  • This is yours.


    Here the possessive pronouns acts as a subject complement.


  • His is on the kitchen counter.


  • Theirs will be delivered tomorrow.


  • Ours is the green one on the corner.


    Here the possessive pronoun acts as the subject of the sentence.
