Possessives show ownership and they were introduced in the lesson Icelandic pronouns under the genitive case. They follow the definite noun and like all other adjectives and pronouns, they have to agree. The following table shows the declensions for the possessive "my":

singular masculine feminine neuter
nominative minn mín  mitt
accusative minn mína mitt
dative mínum  minni mínu 
genitive míns  minnar míns 
plural masculine feminine neuter
nominative mínir  mínar  mín 
accusative mína  mínar  mín 
dative mínum  mínum  mínum 
genitive minna  minna  minna
