Help with Possessive Pronouns:


I've done this skill a while ago, but I'm only writing it into my notebook now. The one thing I don't quite get is he,she and their. Do they all use the same words?

When do you use sin- sitt- sine and so on? When do you use hans- hennes and so on?

Help is greatly appreciated:)

Mange takk!

His = hans. Her = hennes. Their = deres.


You use sin/sitt/sine when the object belongs to the subject. "Han elsker kona si" means "he loves his (own) wife" and "Han elsker kona hans" means "he loves his (some other man's) wife."
