The Possessive pronouns are:

To understand these pronouns it is important to review the pronouns that we
already know.
Subject Object Possessive Possessive
Pronouns Pronouns Adjectives Pronouns
I Me my mine
You You Your Yours
He Him His His
She Her Her Hers
It It Its Its
We Us Our Ours
You You Your Yours
They Them Their Theirs
These are the pronouns that we know so far. Remember that the Subject and
Object pronouns refer to people, places and things (nouns) and the Possessive
adjectives and possessive pronouns refer to possessions.
Como vemos estos son todos los pronombres aprendidos hasta la fecha. Les
hago recordar que es importante aprenderlos y saber las diferencias que
existen entre ellos. Los Subject y object pronouns van a tomar el lugar de
sustantivos y los possessive adjectives y possessive pronouns se utiliza para
expresar posesin.


We use both to talk about possession but they have different rules. LETS
Possessive Adjectives (my, your, his, her, its, our, your, their)
When we use the possessive adjectives IT IS NECESSARY TO PUT A NOUN
AFTER the possessive adjective.
I didnt take my book. (YOU NEED TO PUT BOOK)
Maria went to her house.
We need to put the noun after the possessive adjective my.
Possessive Pronouns (mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, yours, theirs)
When we use the possessive pronouns WE DO NOT PUT THE NOUN AFTER
the possessive pronoun.
Example: We are talking about a book
- That is mine.
- Maria didnt take hers.
It is not necessary to put book because possessive pronouns can stand alone.
*** Entonces entendemos que con los possessive adjectives es necesario que
sea seguido por un sustantivo pero los possessive pronouns pueden ir solos.
Cuando usamos los possessive pronouns se tiene que tener claro de que uno
esta hablando sino lo correcto es usar los possessive adjectives.

Possessive Adjectives versus Possessive Pronouns

A possessive adjective is an adjective that is used to show ownership.
It comes before a noun in the sentence and lets us know to whom the
noun belongs. While many cases of ownership are shown
with possessive nouns (Karen's, children's), these possessive
adjectives are not nouns and are not formed by adding an apostrophe
+ s.
The following words are possessive adjectives:
my your his her its our their
Do not confuse these possessive adjectives with possessive pronouns.
A possessive pronoun does show ownership, but it does not come
before a noun or in a noun phrase. It stands alone. It can also be used
to replace a noun.
