									  POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES
There are 2 ways to express possession in
   English.
1. 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
Here are the possessive
 adjectives in Spanish
• My – mi, mis         • Our – nuestro,
                         nuestra, nuestros,
• Your (fam.s.)- tu,     nuestras
  tus
                       • Your (fam.pl.) –
• Your (Form.s.)-        vuestro, vuestra,
  su, sus                vuestros, vuestras
                       • Your (form.pl.) –
• His, her, its,
                         su, sus
  their- su, sus
        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!
            Examples
Es el libro de ella. It’s her book.

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

1. Busco (mi/su) libro de español.
2. Buscamos (sus/nuestros) cuadernos.
3. Ellos buscan (tus/sus) mochilas.
4. Mi hermana menor busca (mis/sus) lentes.
5. Buscas (tus/vuestras) lapices
6. Mamá busca (su/tu) reloj.
Translate the following:
1. His jacket
2. Her pants
3. My hat
4. Their shirts
5. Our books
6. Your backpack
7. My grandmother
8. His father
9. Our mother
10. Their cousins
     Write 10 things you
