PREFERRED TERM
1260Possessive genitive  
ENTRY TERMS
  • Genitive of belonging
SCOPE NOTE
  • Possessive genitive shows the ideas of ownership or possession. To see if it is the genitive of possession, try substituting the word ‘of’ with ‘belonging to’ or ‘possessed by’. However, this use does not have to indicate actual, physical ownership of some property. It may be a broadly defined type of ownership. This is a very common use of the genitive. A possessive pronoun will often be used in the genitive case to show possession.
