Possessive Pronouns


Pronouns are words that are used in place of nouns or noun phrases.

Possessive pronouns are used to show ownership.


Examples are mine, yours, his, hers, their, ours and its.

"Its" doesn’t require a possessive apostrophe.

Remember, when possessive words are used as determiners, they often change their form.
