Poss: possessive


Boolean feature of pronouns, determiners or adjectives. It specifies a word as possessive or not possessive.

While many tagsets would have “possessive” as one of the various pronoun types, this feature has been intentionally kept separate from PronType, as it is orthogonal to pronominal types. Several of the pronominal types can be optionally possessive, and adjectives can too.

Yes: it is possessive

In Pomak, the feature ‘Poss=Yes is assigned to some pronoun types.

Note that there is no No value. If the word is not possessive, the Poss feature will just not be mentioned in the FEAT column: the empty value has the No meaning.
