If you are not familiar with a pronoun, you should start from:

  1. Learn About Pronouns in Norwegian Part 1

Let’s continue with our lessons on pronouns. We have already learnt about personal pronouns in part 1. This lesson shows the ownership group of pronouns.


As the name implies this group of pronouns shows the ownership (eiendom). Below are some examples:

Huset er mitt.
The house is mine.
Katten er din.
The cat is yours.
Boka er hans.
The book is his.
Bøkene er våre.
The books are ours.
Bøkene er deres.
The books are yours.

These pronouns rely heavily on the gender of the nouns. So if you are not familiar with them you must Learn About Nouns in Norwegian and Learn About Norwegian Nouns and Articles.

Below are examples of the 1st person use of ownership pronouns. The English translations are not the best but I hope you understand what it means.
