    Possessive adjectives short and long Possessive adjectives short and long Presentation Transcript

    • Possessive adjectives
    • Showing Possession
      • In Spanish there are NO apostrophes.
      • You cannot say, for example,
      • Jorge’s dog, (using an apostrophe)
    • Showing Posession
      • You must say, “The dog of Jorge,” only in Spanish.
      • Like this: El perro de Jorge.
    • De + noun
      • This concept of showing possession is using “ de + noun .”
      • For example: Tengo el cuaderno de Felipe.
    • General info
      • Unlike English, Spanish has two forms of possessive adjectives:
        • a short form that is used before nouns
        • and a long form that is used after nouns.
      • The more common type is the short form that you learned in Spanish 1.
      • We will review the short term and then learn the long form.
    • Short Form—before noun
      • Possessive adjectives show ownership or relationships between people.
      ellas ella sus libros ellos sus libros él su libro ustedes su libro usted tus libros tu libro t ú nuestros libros/ nuestras casas mis libros nuestro libro/ nuestra casa nosotros(as) mi libro yo Owner Owner
    • Gender and number agreement
      • While possessive adjectives refer to the owner, their form agrees in gender and number with the noun that comes after them.
      Martín vive con su s abuelo s . Carlos y yo vivimos con nuestr a abuel a . refers to agrees grammatically
    • Long Form—after noun
      • Possessive adjectives show ownership or relationships between people.
      ellas ella suyos, suyas ellos suyos, suyas él suyo, suya ustedes suyo, suya usted tuyos, tuyas tuyo, tuya t ú nuestros, nuestras m ío s, mías nuestro, nuestra nosotros m ío, mía yo Owner Owner
    • Long form—ejemplos
      • Este pupitre es de Juan. Ese pupitre es .
      • El perro es de ellos. Es el perro .
      • Mi toalla est á en el baño. Es la toalla .
      • Change to the long form:
        • Mi blusa
        • su vestido
        • Tus camisas
        • Nuestros libros
      m ío suyo mía La blusa mía El vestido suyo Las camisas tuyas Los libros nuestros
    • Just a note…
      • As you may have noticed, the short form and long forms of nuestro are identical. They differ only as to whether they are used before or after the noun.
