French Possessive Adjectives, Pronouns, Prepositions
Adjectifs, pronoms et prépositions possessifs
Possession may be nine-tenths of the law, but when it comes to grammar, expressing ownership leaves no room for interpretation. French expresses possession with adjectives, pronouns, and even two different prepositions – each construction offers a slightly different take on who owns what.
French possessive adjectives (mon, ma, mes, ton, ta ...) are used in front of nouns to indicate to whom or to what those nouns belong. They are considerably more complicated than English possessive adjectives because French has several different forms depending on the gender and number of the possessed noun.
