More about Possessive Pronouns in Spanish.

Possessive Pronouns

As in English, the possessive pronouns are those  pronouns used to designate:

  • property
  • relationship with something

Although possessive pronouns, or simply possessive,  have as main value of possession, they also have a relational value, because it linked  “the possessed” with one or more owners.

In the common grammar, the most important classification criterion is based in the position,  before or after, respect to the noun. In the theoric Grammar, are usually distinguished with the criterion that the possessive pronouns replace the noun. When accompanying the noun, are classified as possessive adjectives.

The main and very important difference respect to English, is given by the distinctions which are made in Spanish in terms of genders (male and female) in the case of possessive pronouns and the number (singular and Plural) in both cases.

We see this through examples:

Possessive Pronouns (After noun or replacing it)
Persona/ Subject Singular Masc. Plural Masc. Singular Femin. Plural Femin. English
Yo/I mio mios mia mias mine
Tu/You tuyo tuyos tuya tuyas yours
El-Ella/He-She suyo suyos suya suyas his/hers
Nosotros/We nuestro nuestros nuestra nuestras ours
Ustedes/You vuestro vuestros vuestra vuestras yours
Ellos-Ellas/They suyo suyos suya suyas theirs

El perro blanco es mio → The white dog is mine → It is mine

Esta casa grande es suya  → This big house is hers → It is hers


Possessive Adjetives (before noun)
Persona/ Subject Singular Plural English
Yo/I mi mis my
Tu/You tu tus your
El-Ella/He-She su sus his/her/its
Nosotros/We nuestro nuestros our
Ustedes/You vuestro vuestro your
Ellos-Ellas/They su sus their

Este es mi perro blanco → This is my white dogpossessive pronouns

Esta es su casa grande → This is her big house

And by combining these forms of use of both possessives:

Este es mi perro blanco. Es el mio → This is my white dog. It is mine

Esta es su casa grande. Es la suya →This is her big house. It is hers
