Possessive pronouns or posvojne zamjenice are used to show, that a noun belongs to somebody or something. For example (mine, yours, hers) in Croatian language possessive pronouns are declined as adjectives which depend on:
The possessive pronouns can have three genders. In Croatian they respond to questions: čiji?, čija?, čije?
masculine gender: Čiji je to auto? ( Whose car is this?)
feminine gender: Čija je to torba? (Whose bag is this?)
neuter gender: Čije je dijete? (Whose child is this?)
Below is the declension of possessive pronouns in all genders and persons.
To indicate the possession of the 3rd person singular or plural endings in -ov (masculine) / -ovo (feminine) and -in (masculine) / -ina (feminine) are added to the object which is possessing.
In the following table is an example of declension of the possessive pronoun "moj".
Remember all possessive pronouns should be always declined in singular and plural form, in grammatical cases and genders.
|Genitive||mojega, moga||mojega, moga||moje|
|Dative||mojemu, mom||mojemu, mom||mojoj|
|Locative||mojemu, mom||mojemu, mom||mojoj|
The following cases coincide in singular: nominative and vocative, dative and locative. Pay attention that sometimes masculine and neuter gender have the same form.
In general in plural coincide possessive pronoun form of dative, vocative and instrumental.

Hello everbody, I am an experienced and teaching-passionate language professional offering tailor-made Croatian (all levels), ... General English (Elementary, Beginner's, Intermediate & Upper-intermediate level) and Russian (Elementary & Intermediate level) Conversation lessons as well as Business English. The lessons are structured ccording to student's needs with a variety of interesting topics. A range of different teaching materials is used. I tend to apply mostly visual aids as, according to my experience, they help students most in memorising new words and language structures. During the lessons we are focusing on further development of communication skills but we are also exploring vocabulary, grammar and culture. We read and discuss various texts, analyze grammatical issues, listen to conversations and songs, play games and quizzes and more than anything, we TALK! That makes conversation lessons always interesting, useful and likeable. As an open and friendly person with an international family and experience of life in other countries, I enjoy meeting people of other cultures. I would be happy to get a chance to help people all over the world to learn the languages I teach. Perhaps you as well? Welcome! Dobro došli! Добро пожаловать! Welkom! Read more
