Possessive Pronouns in Spanish
A possessive pronoun can be used to replace any noun that is also accompanied by a possessive adjective. Each possessive pronoun has four forms that must agree in gender (masculine or feminine) and number (singular or plural) with the noun they replace. They are the same as the long forms of possessive adjectives, but are always used with the definite article.
Possessive Pronoun Forms
|Masculine Singular Form||Masculine Plural Form||Feminine Singular Form||Feminine Plural Form|

|second person formal singular (usted)|
|third person singular (él, ella)|

Note that third person singular and third person plural possessive pronoun forms are the same! El suyo can mean his, hers, yours, or theirs.
