Transcript of Spanish Possessive Adjectives

Possessive Adjectives Possessive adjectives are used to show ownership. You've seen this chart before... Yo Nosotros

Él / Ella / Usted Ellos / Ellas / Ustedes
... now here are their possessive adjectives: mi / mis nuestro(s) / nuestra(s)
tu / tus
su / sus su / sus Possessive adjectives agree with the nouns they modify. That is, they agree with the thing possessed, not the possessor.

mi libro
my book
mis libros
my books
tu pluma
your pen
tus plumas
your pens

Mi, tu and su do not have masculine and feminine forms. They stay the same, regardless of the gender of the nouns they modify.

mi amigo
mi amiga

tus hermanos
tus hermanas

su libro
sus plumas
nuestro hermano
our brother
nuestra hermana
our sister
nuestros hermanos
our brothers
nuestras hermanas
our sisters

case for
'nuestro' Created By:
Señor Ganado Finally, if you aren't sure about which posessive adjective to use, you can also use the prepositional phrase 'de'... El libro de Juan =
Juan's book (literally, the book of Juan)

La abuela de Ana y Pablo = Pablo and Ana's grandmother

La idea de los niños =
The kids' idea

La iglesia de Madrid = Madrid's church
