As with nouns and adjectives, possessive adjectives must agree in Polish

Rules[edit | edit source]

Possessive adjectives in English are my, your, his, her, its, our and their.

As possessive adjectives are adjectives this means that their form will differ if they are used with nouns in the nominative, genitive, datic, accusative, instrumental, locative or genitive cases. There are also some differences for feminine nouns.

The table below illustrates the use of my and your with masculine/neuter and feminine singular nouns. Nasz (our) and wasz (your, where you is a group of people) are declined the same way.
