In this post we’ll show you the Possessive Adjectives in Spanish. Remember that Possessive Adjectives go before a noun and they show possession. For example in the sentence Este es mi bolso “mi” is the posessive adjective, meaning my.
Take a look at the following chart. The first column is the Spanish word and the latter the English equivalent.
|nuestro (a)||our (masc./fem. noun)|
Here are some examples that use this particular grammar in Spanish. Check them out:
- Mi perro (My dog)
- Tu amigo (Your friend)
- Su paraguas (Her umbrella)
- Su juguete (His toy)
- Su bambú (Its bamboo)
- Nuestro gato (Our cat)
- Su casa (Their house)
- Su maletín (His briefcase) [in a formal context]
It is important to keep in mind that these Possessive Adjectives need to match the number of the noun they preceed. Meaning that, if we are talking about a singular noun they will stay exactly as you’ve seen them in the chart. But if the nouns are in their plural form the adjectives need to be plural as well. We will explain just that with the same examples but this time in their plural form.
- Mis perros (My dogs)
- Tus amigos (Your friends)
- Sus paraguas (Her umbrellas)
- Sus juguetes (His toys)
- Sus bambúes (Its bamboos)
- Nuestros gatos (Our cats)
- Sus casas (Their houses)
- Sus maletines (His briefcases) [in a formal context]
