Personal pronouns in Genitive case in German

In German, personal pronouns change in the genitive case to indicate possession or to show a relationship between two nouns. Here are the personal pronouns in the genitive case:

  1. Singular:
  • masculine: meines (mine), deines (yours), seines (his), ihres (hers)
  • feminine: meiner (mine), deiner (yours), seiner (his), ihrer (hers)
  • neuter: meines (mine), deines (yours), seines (his), ihres (hers)
  1. Plural:
  • masculine and neuter: unserer (ours), eurer (yours), ihrer (theirs)
  • feminine: unserer (ours), eurer (yours), ihrer (theirs)


  • Das ist das Buch meines Vaters. (This is my father’s book.)
  • Ich habe das Auto meiner Schwester gekauft. (I bought my sister’s car.)
  • Sie hat das Haus ihrer Großeltern geerbt. (She inherited her grandparents’ house.)
  • Das ist der Hund unseres Nachbarn. (That is our neighbor’s dog.)

It’s worth noting that the genitive case in German is less commonly used in everyday conversation compared to other cases, and often gets replaced by the dative case with the preposition “von” (of/from).
