  1. Possessive adjectives agree with the object that is possessed, not the possessor.

  2. French mon, ton, and son are also used before feminine nouns beginning with a vowel or h.

  3. To avoid ambiguity since so many forms are identical, French uses à + stressed pronoun, while Spanish uses de + stressed pronoun following the noun that is possessed.

  4. Portuguese can replace the forms of seu with de + stressed pronoun: dêle, dela, dêles, dela

  5. Italian and Portuguese possessive pronouns are identical to the possessive adjectives.

  6. Spanish can also use possessive pronouns as possessive adjectives if they follow the noun instead of preceding it.
