[Part 1] belong /owned /possession

Hi, everybody and welcome.

In this video, we’re going to learn about possessive pronouns.

Ok…

And we use possessive pronouns to show that something belongs to us
or something is owned by us.

Ok, or someone else.

So, let’s take a look at the board.

Now, last time we learned about subjective pronouns.

And here they are.

Ok…

And in another video, we talked about possessive adjectives.

And here they are.

Ok…

And over here are the possessive pronouns that we’re going to talk about in this video.

Now, possessive adjectives and possessive pronouns are the same.

They show possession.

Which means, I own something.

Something belongs to me…or to someone else.

Ok…

The only difference is that they’re used a little differently.

For possessive adjectives, you have to put a noun after.

Ok…

“My dog.”

Ok…

But for possessive pronouns, you don’t have to put a noun after it.

Ok, you can just say “mine”.

Ok…

So let’s go through each one.
“My. Mine.”

Ok…

And this is the same.

“His. His.”

Ok…

For ‘her’, we say “hers”.

We add an ‘s’.

“Hers.”

“Its. Its.”

Again, it’s the same.

“Your. Yours.”

We have to put an ‘s’.

“Yours.”

“Our. Ours.”

and “Their. Theirs.”

Ok, again, I know that this can be really confusing, but let’s practice some more.

Ok…

And let’s move on to the next part.

1:59 [Part 2]

Ok, let’s practice together.

Now, “This is my marker.”

But with possessive pronouns, you do not have to put a noun after.

Ok, so I can say, “This is mine.”

“This isn’t yours.”

“This is mine.”

Ok, let’s look at the board.

This boy has a hat.

So we say, “This is his.”

“This isn’t mine.”

“This isn’t yours.”

“This is his.”

The girl has a dress.

“This is hers.”

“This isn’t mine.”

“This isn’t yours.”

“This is hers.”

Ok…

Now with ‘its’, it’s kind of different.

Ok…

You still have to put a noun, so you can’t say, “This is its.”

You have to say, “This is its ball.”

Again, “This is its ball.”

“This isn’t mine.”

“This isn’t yours.”

“This is its ball.”

Ok…

Now we have two people who have a house.

“This is theirs.”

“This isn’t mine.”

“This isn’t yours.”

“This is theirs.”

Ok…

Now over here, we have some books and we’re going to say that they belong to these two people.

Ok…

So we’re going to use the plural ‘be’ verb; ‘are’.

Ok…

“These are theirs.”

“These aren’t mine.”

“These aren’t yours.”

“These are theirs.”

Ok…

And last, we have a picture of Korea.

Ok…

“This is ours.”

“This is ours.”

Ok, let’s move on to the next part.

3:52 [Part 3]

Ok, let’s look at these examples.

We have to put in some possessive pronouns.

Ok…

“That lipstick is _____.”

Ok, well we have the noun ‘lipstick’ and usually a girl or woman wears lipstick, so we’re going to use the possessive pronoun ‘hers’.

Ok…

“That lipstick is hers.”

Ok…

The next sentence.

“That sports car is _____.”

Ok…

Again, usually a man will drive a sports car.

So, we can say, “That sports car is his.”

Ok…

Now, let’s look at these last two.

“This money is mine, not yours.”

“This money is mine, it belongs to me.”

“It doesn’t belong to you.”

Not yours.

Ok…

And the last one.

“Dokdo is ours.”

It’s Koreas.

Right…

“Not theirs.”

Not Japans.

“It belongs to us.”

So we say, “It’s ours.”

Ok, so in this video, we learned possessive pronouns.

I hope you understand and I’ll see you in the next video.

Bye.
