Adjetivo posesivo

Spanish possessive adjective

Possessive adjectives indicate ownership or possession. The English possessive adjectives are my, your, his, her, its, our, your and their.

Spanish has many more possessive adjectives because they have to agree in number and sometimes gender with their nouns.

For example

Yo busco mi bolso y mis llaves.
I'm looking for my bag and my keys.

Ella conoce a nuestros hermanos y a nuestra madre.
She knows our brothers and our mother.

Tu amigo envidia tus cualidades.
Your friend envies your qualities.
