Polish grammar possessives lesson 5

Possessives

Possessive pronouns show to who/what something belongs. As in English possessive pronouns change slightly in case. For example, In English we say. This house in mine. This is my house. It changes in case.

In English our pronouns are: my, your, his/her/its, their our,. However, in Polish again possessive pronouns agree in in case gender and number.

They answer the question – whose does it belong?.

Rozmawiałam z moim szefem o naszym projekciem.

Dawno nie widziałem mojej siostry ani jej męża.

  1. I am sorry but you seem to be very confused about English. There are two parts of speech that have to do w/ possessive. One is the possessive adjective (my, your, his, her, its, our, their). The other is the possessive pronoun used as a predicate adjective: mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, theirs, i.e. This house is theirs. But: Their house is around the corner. Got it? Please make this correction.

  2. And therefore, those have nothing to do w/ case!

    As for our possessive pronouns, you have them all wrong. Possessive pronouns once again are: mine, yours, his, hers, its, ours, and theirs.

    Our personal pronouns are I, me, you, he, him, she, her, it, our, and they/them. As you can see the only pronouns that have CASE are I and me, he and him, she and her, and finally they and them. There are no case endings among our possessive pronouns or adjectives.

    I am afraid your frequent errors about English call in question what you might be trying to teach about Polish. Can I trust you to know what you are saying in Polish, if you cannot adequately explain English?
