Mano Tavo Jo Jos - Hi there, I’m Jack and I’m Raminta and welcome back to Lithuanian Out Loud where we offer the world the Lithuanian language.

The Lithuanian national flag is the tricolor of yellow, green and red.  The yellow represents the golden fields of Lithuanian grain, the green represents the green countryside of Lithuania and red represents the blood that has been shed on Lithuanian soil.

Pradėkime, let’s get started

You already know the personal pronouns well;  aš, tu, jis, ji, mes, jūs, jie, jos.

Today we’ll use the personal pronouns with possession.  These are;

my                          
mano

your (tu)                
tavo

his                          
jo

her                        
jos

our                        
mūsų

your (jūs)              
jūsų

your (you plural)    
jūsų

their (m/f or m/m)

their (f/f)                

In previous episodes we worked on possession using kilmininkas or the genitive case.  Let’s review some simple examples.
