Learn Thai – Possessive pronouns & Possessive adjectives

Hi everyone,

From my previous blogs you now know a lot of Thai pronouns, then let’s see how we form possessive pronouns. It is very easy 🙂

The possessive pronouns ‘mine’, ‘yours’, ‘his’, etc. are formed using the following;

kŏrng + personal pronoun

 

mine = kŏrng chán (ของฉัน)

yours = kŏrng kun (ของคุณ)

 

kŏrng kun sǔay

ของคุณสวย

Yours is beautiful.

 

rót nán kŏrng káo

รถนั้นของเขา

That car is his.

 

 

Thai Possessive adjective is just exactly the same as Thai possessive pronouns

kŏrng + personal pronoun

 

my, mine     =  kŏrng chán (ของฉัน)

your, yours = kŏrng kun (ของคุณ)

 

When the possessive adjective is used, the order is different from English. In Thai language, the possessive adjetives follow the nouns.

NOUN + POSSESSIVE ADJETIVE 

For example:

bâan kŏrng chán

บ้านของชั้น

My house.

 

lûuk-săao kŏrng pûak-káo

ลูกสาวของพวกเขา

Their daughter.

 

măa kŏrng kun

หมาของคุณ

Your dog.

The main thing is you need to put your mind in Thai language system so you wouldn’t mix up the order of noun and possessive adjective 🙂

Keep practicing.
