Portuguese Possessive Pronouns and Determiners

Portuguese possessive pronouns and determiners indicate possession. In English, these are words like myyourhis, her, our, their (possessive determiners) and mineyourshis, hersours, theirs (possessive pronouns).

Possessive pronouns and determiners look the same in Portuguese. However, while determiners precede the noun they qualify, pronouns replace the noun altogether and thus stand alone:

Possessive determiners (precede the noun)
O meu carro é novo em folha. 
My car is brand new.

Possessive pronouns (stand-alone)
Aquele carro ali é meu.
That car over there is mine.

Portuguese possessive determiners

Possessive determiners precede the noun they qualify and are normally preceded by a definite article:

Masculine singularFeminine singularMasculine pluralFeminine plural
myo meu amigoa minha amigaos meus amigosas minhas amigas
youro teu amigoa tua amigaos teus amigosas tuas amigas
formal your

his/her *
o seu amigoa sua amigaos seus amigosas suas amigas
ouro nosso amigoa nossa amigaos nossos amigosas nossas amigas
youro vosso amigoa vossa amigaas vossas amigasos vossos amigos
their *o seu amigoa sua amigaos seus amigosas suas amigas

* Refer to the “3-person de-possessives” below

Here are a few examples where it is clear that these determiners agree in gender and number with the possessed things:

Trouxeste os nossos livros?
Did you bring our books?

Gostei muito de conhecer os teus pais.
It was a pleasure to meet your parents.

Não sei onde pus as minhas lentes.
I don’t know where I put my lenses.

We often skip the possessive adjective when the relationship between the possessor and the possessed is implicit or obvious:

Vim de carro.
I came in my car.

A Joana falou ao telefone com a prima do Brasil.
Joana spoke on the phone with her cousin from Brazil.

Veste as calças!
Put your trousers on!

Portuguese possessive pronouns

Possessive pronouns replace the noun they refer to (thus standing alone). 

Masculine singularFeminine singularMasculine pluralFeminine plural
mine(o) meu(a) minha(os) meus(as) minhas
yours(o) teu(a) tua(os) teus (as) tuas
formal yours

his/hers*

yours(o) vosso (a) vossa(as) vossas (os) vossos 
theirs*(o) seu(a) sua(os) seus(as) suas

* Refer to the “3-person de-possessives” below

Notice how possessive pronouns, like possessive determiners, agree in gender and number with the noun they refer to (and replace):
