Mistake in the Possessive Adjective section?
I was looking something up on this site when I noticed something that might be a mistake in the plural posessive section;
It says the singular possessive for their is "leurs", when some of my other sources say it should be "leur" instead. I might be wrong, but I guess the singular and plural simply got mixed up?
I'm very new to french, so maybe I'm confusing this with something else and it's correct after all.
Either way, thank you for this website 🙂
Bonjour ! Yes, you're absolutely right, the singular and plural were reversed. This is fixed, merci et bonne continuation !
There is a mistake in that page.
For our, your, their, it says that singular possession is notre, votre, leurs and plural possession is nos, vos, leur.
In fact, Laura needs to switch leurs and leur, so that singular possession is leur and plural possession is leurs.
Laura gives two examples:
- Ils cherchent leur voiture --> singular possession (one car)
- Elles adorent leurs cours --> plural possession (several classes).
These examples are correct.
You are 'new to French', maybe, but you are good at grammar!
I see that Laura sent you her reply while I was writing mine. The most important thing is that we are in agreement!
