「”This is my dictionary." "This dictionary is mine."
これは私の辞書だ/です。Kore wa watashi no jisho da/desu. この辞書は私のだ/です。Kono jisho wa watashi no da/desu.」
In Japanese, the demonstrative pronouns kore, sore, and are are equivalent to the English "this" (or ”these”)、"that" (or "those"), and "that over there" (or "those over there"). Kore is used to indicate a thing near the speaker, sore a thing near the listener, and are means a thing some distance away from both speaker and listener. These pronouns have polite forms kochira, sochira, and achira, respectively which may be used when referring to people, and objects.
When kore, sore, or are is used to modify a noun, they take the form of kono, sono, or ano, with the polite forms kochira, sochira, or achira change to kochira no, sochira no, or achira no. When the particle no follows a noun it can function as a possessive.
