This is an English grammar lesson all about possessive pronouns. What are possessive pronouns? Possessive pronouns are "mine", "yours", "his", "hers", "ours", "yours" and "theirs". They describe possession of something and they replace the noun and possessive adjective. How to use possessive pronouns and why do we use them? We use them to avoid repeating the noun. Example: "I like that shirt. Is it yours?" - Here the possessive pronoun "yours" replaces "my shirt". This makes the sentence sound and read better. The possessive pronoun can be used as the subject of a sentence, example "Yours is blue." or as the object of a sentence, example "I don't like yours." The possessive pronoun agrees with the person who owns the noun and not with the noun itself. We use the same pronoun for nouns in the singular and plural. Example: "It is yours." and "They are yours." When we are writing, there is no apostrophe in any of the pronouns. Example this sentence is wrong: "Your's is very nice." This sentence is correct: ""Yours is very nice." At the end of the English lesson, there is an exercise to test your understanding. The accent in the video is a British English accent.
