Grammar Term:
Possessive Article

Possessive articles are indicate possession.
English examples are “my”, “your” or “her”.

The difference to possessive pronouns is that articles cannot stand alone.

article:

  • This is my bike.
  • This is my.        WRONG

pronoun:

  • This is mine bike.   WRONG
  • This is mine.

In German, they of course get different endings depending on case and gender, so you have more “options” there.

And we all like options, right ;)?

I’ll add a table here soon!
