Wednesday, June 29th 2011

Hi Alex,

Thanks for your lesson so much! You do a great job!

But I have a question: in the question number 4 “Whose MP3 player did you borrow?”, why the answer is “his” not “her, their or my”? I think all above choices are correct for this question. Could you please give me an explanation. Thank you in advance, Alex.

Muop,

Wednesday, June 29th 2011

    Hi Muopmap,

    I’d like to answer to your Question.
    In the Q.no.4 the answer is ‘his’ why because is, we need pronoun for this question. But her, their and my are adjectives which followed by something.
    hope you understand

    Thursday, June 30th 2011

      Now, I got it. Thanks so much ^^, Navin!

      Friday, July 1st 2011

    hi muopmap!! u r vietnamese!!! me too :P so Im gonna type in viet…
    Subject là He, Adjective là His and then Pronoun là his also. ko có change như they –> their–> theirs
    she–> her–> hers…. mà pronoun thường đứng cuối câu ko có kèm theo something… nên fải có ‘s’ : hers, yours, theirs… so in the Question number 4 only 1 the correct answer: his …. okay??? hope u get it!!!! :)

    Thursday, June 30th 2011

Thursday, June 30th 2011

Hi Alex!
A very very helpful and comprehensible. I thought it difficult and complicated from grammar but you expressed the possession in English very easily. Thanks a lot.

Thursday, June 30th 2011

    But sir,
    Can you tell why their is no pronoun for the word ‘it’?

    Thanks for your reply.

    Thursday, June 30th 2011

      Hi engvideos,
      may I answer your question.Ususaly we mentioned non living being as ‘it’ (e.g. pen, book, chair etc.). So they can’t possess any thing with them.But we mentioned animals as ‘it’. so we could say ‘this bones belongs to it (DOG)’. But it not sounds good.

      Tuesday, July 5th 2011

Thanks Alex, it really remind me the bacis English class, very very important.

Saturday, October 8th 2011

Great Job !! I like your vidios very much :)

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

Being a non-native teacher of English with university education in linguistics, was quite surprised to learn that a posessive pronoun “my” all of a sudden turned out to be an ajective, and an absolute form of a posessive pronoun, “mine”, turned out to be just a pronoun. No offense, but you might like to check this out: http://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/american-english/my?q=my, and, in case that’s not enough, this might come in handy as well: http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/my?rskey=9gMMxb&result=2. I see that teaching non-natives doesn’t require any i-depth research, but a simple dictionary check from time to time won’t hurt. Best regards and good luck with your next plunge into English grammar

Wednesday, October 19th 2011

P.S. Sorry, got a bit carried away – “adjective”.

Hi Alex,

I gone through quiz and i have a question from the quiz/objective?

Hope you answer quickly!
Question # 1:
Whose watch is this?

And the Ans is it’s hers

Question # 2:

Whose jacket is that?
It’s her jacket.

Why the answer is not same for both the question. It’s hers instead of It’s her Jacket and also why not It’s her watch instead of It’s her.

Warm Regards,
Mohammed Shahith
