In this lesson, we will talk about the ‘Possessive’.

So, when we talk about possessives in English grammar, we’re basically showing that something belongs to someone or something else. It’s like saying, “Hey, this is mine!” or “That’s her book.”

There are two main types of possessives:

  1. Using ‘s: You add ‘s to someone’s name or a thing to show it belongs to them. For example, Sarah’s cat means the cat belongs to Sarah. Another example: The cat’s tail (the tail belongs to the cat).
  2. Using ‘of’: If it feels a bit weird to add ‘s, you can also use “of.” For instance, the book of John means the book belongs to John. Another example: The tail of the cat (the tail belongs to the cat).

Easy, right? It’s just a way of saying who owns or has something. We use it to indicate that something belongs to someone or something else.
