Possessive adjectives show ownership or
relationships between people. They are placed
before the noun.

Posessive Adjectives
  • singular
  • mi / mis (my)
  • tu / tus (your)
  • su / sus (his,her)
  • or (your f.)
  • plural
  • nuestro a, os, as (our)
  • vuestro, a, os, as
  • (your inf.)
  • su / sus (their)
  • or (your f.)

In English, the possessive adjectives his, her,
and their tell whether something belongs to a
male, a female, or more than one person.
  • In Spanish, the possessive adjective su has
    many possible meanings (his, her, its, your,
    their). Context usually makes the meaning clear.

  • mi hermano mis hermanos
  • tu abuela tus abuelas
  • su hijo sus hijos
  • nuestro tío nuestros tíos
  • nuestra tía nuestras tías

Possessive Adjectives
  • The possessive adjective must be singular if the
    noun is singular and plural if the noun is
    plural.

                                                                                          
While possessive adjectives refer to the owner, their form agrees in gender and number with the noun that comes after them.
