Possessive adjectives are used to show ownership of objects and relationships between people.
- Please pass me my bag
- Her French is excellent
As in English there are different forms for the different ‘owners’ but in French the tricky concept of masculine/feminine also comes in to play for the ‘owned’.
And if the ‘owned’ begins with a vowel or a silent h, in the singular form is will always take the masculine option (mon, ton, son), even if it’s feminine!
- Son école est près de la poste (une école)
- Ton opinion m’importe (une opinion)
