PRONOUNS / TSWV

In the Hmong language the pronoun forms stay the same no matter where you put and/or use in the sentence. In other words, pronouns do not change from you to your, and yours like in the English language. However, the placement and/or location of the pronoun tells readers/listeners the type of pronouns, i.e., whether the pronoun is a subject pronoun or a possessive pronoun.

Additionally, there are words in the Hmong language that are used to describe the possession of the objects rather than using a possessive pronouns to indicate its ownership.
