Possessive Adjectives in Portuguese
Possessives Adjectives in Portuguese are those that, point to a person (possessor), and give the idea that he/she possesses something (possessed object). They have the same names that the Possessive Pronouns have. But Differently from the Possessive Pronouns, they don’t appear in the end of the sentence, but right before the noun.
Este é o meu livro.

José, esse é o seu caderno?
José, is this your notebook?
Aquela é a sua mãe.
That’s her dog.
