Possessive zeigen an, wem etwas gehört. Das deutsche Wort dafür ist: besitzanzeigendes Fürwort oder Possessivpronomen. Im Englischen unterscheidet man zwischen possessive determiners, die vor einem Nomen stehen und possessive pronouns, die für ein Nomen stehen.


possessive determiners

Durch kleine Wörter könnt ihr anzeigen, wem etwas gehört. Im Englischen lauten sie folgendermaßen:

singular (Einzahl) plural (Mehrzahl)
1st person my our
2nd person your your
3rd person his, her, its their


Is that your book? - Yes, it's my book.
Is that his ruler? - No. It's her ruler.
Is that their sponge? - No. It's our sponge.

possessive pronouns

Neben den possessive determiners, die immer vor einem Nomen stehen, könnt ihr possessive pronouns als besitzanzeigendes Fürwort anstelle eines Nomens verwenden.


Is that your book? - Yes, it's my book.
                                 Yes, it's mine.
Is that his ruler? - No, it's her ruler.
                             No, it's hers.
Is that their sponge? - Yes. It's theirs .
