Possessive pronouns in Russian

Overview of the article published on the SLO website:

Possessive pronouns are words which are used in place of a noun or another pronoun and indicate ownership (in English, these are pronouns “my”, “your”, “his”, “her” etc.). In Russian, as in English, these pronouns reflect all three persons. Also, they agree in gender, number, and case with the modified noun.

The Russian languages has also a particular pronoun свой, called reflexive possessive pronoun, that mean ‘one’s own’ and shows the ownership to subject of the verb in a phrase. This pronoun can be used only if the possessor and the subject are in the same phrase.

The article presents the declension patterns of all Russian possessive pronouns.
