English Language Tips: Saxon Genitive

Please LIKE Us!

Today’s English language tip: We’re using the Saxon Genitive -‘s- for possession when we talk about:

-People: Linda’s car. (El coche de Linda.)

-Animals: The cat’s paw. (La pata del gato.)

-Time: Yesterday’s mail. (El correo de ayer.)

•-‘s- is also used to talk about jobs and places where people work.

For example:
-I went to the doctor’s (doctor’s office). = Fui al medico. (no hace falta decir “doctor’s office” porque se entiende bien con decir “doctor’s”

-Go to the butcher’s (butcher shop). = Ve a la carnicería.
