||Seo, So Young. (2018). A study of the long-forms of possessive adjectives (in Spanish). The Linguistic Association of Korea Journal, 26(2), 249-269. Unlike English, Spanish has two forms of possessive adjectives: the short-forms that are used before nouns, and the long-forms that are placed after nouns.
