A possessive pronoun is a type of pronoun that indicates ownership or possession of something. It replaces a noun phrase and shows who or what possesses or owns an object, person, or concept. Possessive pronouns are used to avoid repetition in sentences and to indicate that something belongs to someone or something.

Here is a list of possessive pronouns:

  • Mine

  • Yours

  • His

  • Hers

  • Its

  • Ours

  • Yours (plural)

  • Theirs

For example, instead of saying "The book belongs to John," you can say "The book is his." In this sentence, "his" is a possessive pronoun that indicates ownership by John. Similarly, "The car is mine," indicates that the car belongs to the speaker.
