We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate. In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Message 2: Possessive Determiners
From: Laura Collins <lcollinsalcor.concordia.ca>
Subject: Possessive Determiners
My colleagues and I are interested in finding examples of languages in which the
gender of the possessive determiners (in particular the translation equivalents
of "his" and "her") is determined by the possessor (as is the case in English -
He is in HIS house; She is in HER house) rather than by the possessed entity (as
in the case, for example, with French - Il est dans SA maison; Elle est dans SA
maison). I will post a summary of responses.
Linguistic Field(s): Morphology
