Possessives Posted by on Jul 17, 2009 in Dutch Language

First, let’s learn how to form posessives like, my, your, his etc.

In the singular form:

my = mijn

your (informal) = je

your (polite) = uw

his = zijn

her = haar

its = zijn

In the plural:

our (singular neuter nouns) = ons

our (singular common nouns and plural nouns) = onze

your = jullie (informal)

your = uw (formal)

their = hun

In the next post, I’ll have family members listed. You’ll be able to introduce your family members in the next post. Before you introduce your family, you want to learn how to say, “my” as in “my father is…”, so take a good look at this post.
