Possessive Pronouns

In addition to the genetive forms above (hans his; hennar hers; þess its; þeirra theirs;) there are four possessive pronouns minn (mine), þinn (yours), sinn (his,her,its, their) and vor (our). The latter is only used in writing. In speech, okkar is used. (See declension above.) Note the accents in the declensions below because they can differentiate between one gender and another and one case and another.
Here is the declension of the first three personal pronouns: (using minn as the example)
