To express these concepts in Inuktut, we take the possessive endings that we learned in the previous lesson and add the prefix pi-:

Una piga. This is mine.
Una pet. This is yours.
Una pinga. This is his/hers.
Una pingat. This is theirs.


Dual forms (These are slightly irregular)

Tâkkua pekka. Those two things are mine.
Tâkkua pekkik. Those two things are yours.
Tâkkua pingik. Those two things are his/hers/theirs 


Plural forms:
