What are the pronouns in the following sentence?: The mailman will be happy if you keep your dog inside.

1 Answer

You, your


You is a personal pronoun, a word that takes the place of a noun (name) for the person (people) spoken to.

Your is a possessive adjective (your dog), a word that takes the place of a possessive noun.

P.S. So far I know, the British grammarians don't use possessive adjective, they say --your-- possessive pronoun.
