    TOPIC: Pronouns: possessive adjectives and pronouns

    It is very important to know that there is something called POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES and

    POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS, since these are very common in English and are likely to be

    tested in any TOEFL exam. You must be able to recognize them and know when to use

    them correctly.

    NOTE THE FOLLOWING

    POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS

    my mine

    your yours

    his his

    her hers

    its

    our ours

    their theirs

    POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES These are adjectives and always go before the noun they describe. For example: my car, your house, their sister. If there is no noun to describe, there cant be any possessive adjectives.

    POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS A pronoun is a word that substitutes or replaces a noun. So, possessive pronouns do not

    accompany nouns. They go alone. For example, This book is mine. (Not, This book is

    mine book.) or That is hers. (Not, That is hers cellphone.)

    ____________ NOTE: Possessive adjectives and possessive pronouns are used differently. Possessive adjectives go before nouns, and possessive pronouns do not.
