Possessives
There is no special possessive pronoun in Alessian. Instead, an 'of' ([de] - /də/) is placed before the personal pronoun to indicate possession, i.e. "of me", "of you", etc.

Example:
"My boat" - "(yr) bád de mé"
So here the literal transcription would be "boat of me" or "the boat of me".

However, there are some irregularities with 3rd person singular pronouns (he/she/it) and 1st person plural (we):
EnglishAlessianPronunciation
hisd'é/de:/
herd'í/di:/
itsd'ish/dɪʃ/
ourd'amí/dami:/

The 'n' of [én] and [ín] is gone and for any of those cases the [de] is shortened to [d'], because there would be two vowels in line that do not fit together.

New: Possession can also be indicated by a possessive suffix behind the noun.

Example:
"My boat" - "(yr) bádam".
Literal transcription.

An overview of all the possessive suffixes:
EnglishAlessianPronunciation
my-am/am/
your/o:/
his/e:/
her/i:/
its-en/en/
our-ym/ɪm/
your-wí/wi:/
their-er/er/
