Lesson 18: POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS – PRONOMI POSSESSIVI (part II)


Hello guys and welcome back to my blog! Today I’m still talking about pronouns, possessive pronouns for this lesson. Let’s get started πŸ™‚
Possessive pronouns are used to indicate possession (if that makes sense). An example:Β This is my book – Questo Γ¨ il mio libro.
These in the chart are the possessive pronouns in Italian. They can also be possessive adjectives, depending on the use.
I pers. sing. Mio Mia Mie Miei
II pers. sing. Tuo Tua Tue Tuoi
III pers. sing. Suo Sua Sue Suoi
I pers. plur. Nostro Nostra Nostre Nostri
II pers. plur. Vostro Vostra Vostre Vostri
III pers. plur. Loro Loro Loro Loro
III pers. Proprio
III pers. Altrui (not used much)
MIO —> MY and MINE. Β This is my book. Questo libro Γ¨ mio (adjective) / This is mine. Questo Γ¨ il mio. (pronoun)
TUO —> YOUR and YOURS. This is your shirt. Questa Γ¨ la tua camicia / This is yours. Questa Γ¨ la tua.
SUO —> HIS/HER and HIS/HERS
NOTRO —> OUR and OURS
VOSTRO —> YOUR and YOURS
LORO —> THEIR and THEIRS
As regards the use of PROPRIO and ALTRUI:
PROPRIO is always used for III person, always used in impersonal sentences.
Ognuno ha il proprio lavoro – Everyone has its own job.
Ogni persona ha le proprie idee – Everyone has its own ideas.
ALTRUI meaning DI ALTRI (somebody else’s)
Questo Γ¨ compito altrui. This is somebody else’s task.
I hope everything is neat and clear! Thanks again for stopping by πŸ™‚
