Possessive Pronouns Continued

Definition:

Possessive nouns show the person that owns a person, place, thing, or idea.

Possessive adjectives are similar to possessive pronouns. What's the difference?

*Possessive adjectives come before the object of the sentence.

*Possessive pronouns are the object of the sentence. They are the nouns receiving the action.

Example:

1. myself 2. himself
3. herself 4. itself
5. ourselves 6. yourself
7. themselves  

 

Example Sentence:

1. You must protect yourself.

2. She looked at herself in the mirror.

3.We must look within ourselves for courage.
