# please explain possessive pronoun

A possessive pronoun is a part of speech that substitutes for a noun phrase that begins with a possessive determiner (also known as a possessive adjective ). For example, in the sentence These glasses are mine, not yours , the words mine and yours are possessive pronouns and stand for my glasses and your glasses , respectively. Like other pronouns , possessive pronouns can thus obviate the need to repeat nouns or noun phrases. (Sometimes the possessive determiners – my , your etc. – are themselves classified as possessive pronouns; see Possessive adjective: Nomenclature .)
