Chapter 2: Lesson 3: Possessive Pronouns

Possessive Pronouns

 

A Possessive Pronoun shows that something belongs to someone. Examples of some can be as followed: Mine, Yours, His, Hers, Ours, and Theirs.

 

For instance:

 

The last piece of pizza is mine.

 

I think this dirty shirt is yours.

 

Sally wanted everyone to know the new pet cat was hers.

 

The problems I face with most authors when I go through their manuscripts is vague pronouns.

 

Examples:

 

Jessica wanted to get a new bike because it was cool. (Is it cool to have a bike or is the bike cool?)

 

You have to be specific so there is no confusion.

 

Jessica wanted to get a new bike because owning a new bike was cool.
