Grammar: Possessives

In English, we can use of to show possession, for example: the dog of the Queen. However, it is nure natural to use a possessive phrase, for example: The Queen's dog.

 

Proper Nouns (Names)

We very often use a possessive with names:

  • Prince Harry brother.
  • Where is the Duchess of Cambridge's house?
  • Who inherited Lady Diana's wedding ring?

When a name ends in s, we usually treat it like any other singular noun, and add 's:

  • This is Prince Charles' s chair. 

 

A. How are they related to each other? Use a possessive to explain their relationship to each other. 

  • Prince William is Princess Diana´s son
  • Prince William is Prince Harry´s brother
  • The Queen is Catherine´s (the duchess of Cornwall´s) mother in law
