"The new shirts are ours."
Translation:Las camisas nuevas son nuestras.
Should 'nuestros' be a valid end to the sentence too? Would this work if it were two men talking about the shirts?
Thanks! I am somewhat confused by this though - does nuestro/a not refer to the gender of the persons speaking, then?
Now I am really confused because I ended it with "las nuestras." I thought the article was used with possessive pronouns. Maybe this is not a pronoun? Or is it that after "ser" the article is omitted? HELP
Here's what you are looking for :
Definite articles: Note that unlike the equivalent pronouns in English, the Spanish possessive pronouns are usually preceded by the definite article (el, la, los or las), the equivalent of "the." The article is usually dispensed with when the possessive pronoun follows a form of the verb ser, such as son or es, as in the examples, although it is sometimes retained for emphasis.
