bahasa Inggris possessive pronoun

Pernah dengar istilah possessive pronoun? Yap! Possessive pronoun adalah salah satu materi penting bahasa Inggris yang mesti dikuasai di awal proses belajar lho. Simak penjelasan materi possessive pronoun di bawah ini!

pengertian possessive pronoun

Pengertian Possessive Pronoun

Kata ganti posesif untuk menunjukkan bahwa sesuatu benda adalah milik seseorang (something belongs to someone). Beberapa kata ganti posesif adalah my, our, your, his, her, its, dan them. Ada juga bentuk “independen” dari masing-masing kata ganti ini: mine, ours, yours, his, hers, its, and theirs.

Kata ganti posesif menyederhanakan pola yang menunjukkan kepemilikan kata benda. Masih bingung? Coba perhatikan pola dua kalimat berikut ini!

Jane takes pride in Jane’s outfits. (Jane bangga dengan pakaian Jane)

Jane takes pride in her outfits. (Jane bangga dengan pakaiannya)

Pada kalimat pertama, terdapat dua kata ‘Jane‘ dalam kalimat ini dan membingungkan, bukan? Sedangkan setelah menggunakan possessive pronoun, kata Jane diganti dengan kata ‘her’ yang lebih umum digunakan di negara Inggris.

Independent Possessive Pronoun

Independent possessive pronouns atau disebut absolute possessive pronouns.

My phone is dead. Pass me yours. Did you know that Labrador is mine? The house on the corner is theirs.
