LEARN ENGLISH COUNTABLE POSSESSIVE NOUNS

Possessive nouns in English show a possession relation between two nouns. They take the form of (noun + 's + noun)

Example

Peter's car. (correct) (El coche de Peter)

In this example the noun "Peter" possesses a "car". Spanish speakers find these types of nouns a bit difficult to use at first. They tend to use the "of" sentence to show any type of possession relation.

Example

The car of Peter. (incorrect) (El coche de Peter)
