French Possessive Adjectives

The video is at

 Mas / femfemplural
His, her, itsSonSaSes


We use “mon, ton , son” for all masculine words and for feminine ones starting with a vowel or the letter “h” when it is “mute” or silent, what I call a plugged H because there is a connection between the words.

We use “ma, ta, sa” for feminine words starting with a consonant.

We use “mes, tes, ses” for plural, masculine or feminine.

There is one mistake in the video, it is “leurs livres” with an “s” at the end of “leur”.


My car is ma voiture because voiture is feminine, even a boy can say ma voiture.
My book is mon livre because livre is masculine.
My school is mon école, école is feminine but starts with a vowel, so we use “mon”.
My clock is mon horloge, horloge is feminine but starts with a silent “h”.
My ax is ma hache, hache is feminine and the “h” is not silent.
