Spanish has has several different possessive constructions, which can seem daunting until you realize that English does too – you’ve probably just never thought about them before. This page offers a quick summary of the different ways to express possession in Spanish with links to detailed lessons.

Possessive adjectives are the words used in place of articles to indicate to whom or to what something belongs. Their usage is similar to English, but there are some differences in form.
The long or stressed form of Spanish possessive adjectives follow the noun and stress the ownership rather that the thing owned.
