Possessive pronouns.

Possessive pronouns:

mein - my

dein - your

sein - his, its

ihr - her, their

unser - our

euer - your

Ihr - your (in formal contexts)

The reflexive pronoun is sich "oneself".

The word sein means "his" and refers to the words er and es (he and it).
The word ihr means "her" and refers to the word sie (she).
The word ihr also means "their" - it refers then to "sie" (they).
Finally, the pronoun Ihr means "your" and refers to the word Sie (you in formal contexts)

The endings are the same as those of the indefinite article ein. In the plural, they are the same as of the word der.
