Pronoun বা সর্বনাম।

 

১. Possessive pronoun: ইংরেজি ভাষায় সর্বনামের সমস্যা হল ‘আমার ঘর’ আর ‘ঘরটা আমার’ — এখানে আমরা একটা শব্দ ব্যবহার করলেও ইংরেজিতে হয় দু’টা। একটা হয় ‘my house’ আরেকটা ‘The house is mine’।

Myকে বলা হয় Possessive adjective আর Mine কে বলা হয় Possessive pronoun।

2. Using Possessive Pronouns and Adjectives

A possessive pronoun is used instead of a noun:

Julie's car is red. Mine is blue.

A possessive adjective is usually used to describe a noun, and it comes before it, like other adjectives:

My car is bigger than her car.

Remember:

There are no apostrophes in possessive pronouns and adjectives.

The dog wagged its tail.

It's” is not a possessive pronoun or adjective — it means “it is”:

It's not my dog.
