HIS * Belonging to him. [from 8th c.] * 1596, Edmund Spenser, _The Faerie Queene_, IV.i: With that he put HIS spurres vnto his steed, / With speare in rest, and toward him did fare, / Like shaft out of a bow preuenting speed. * 2011, Xan Rice, _The Guardian_, 8 Apr 2011: In HIS first televised address since the siege in Abidjan began this week, Ouattara said he would focus on returning the country to normal to ease the plight of civilians. * (obsolete) Its; belonging to it. (Now only when implying personification.) [11th-17th c.] * 1603, John Florio, translating Michel de Montaigne, _Essays_, II.2: My stomacke could not well reach so farre: it is very much troubled to come to an end of that which it takes for HIS need. * 1611, Matthew 5:13, King James Version: Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost HIS savour, wherewith shall it be salted? * (archaic) Used as a genitive marker in place of _’s_ after a noun, especially a masculine noun ending in _-s_, to express the possessive case. [from 11th c.] _Ahab HIS mark_ for _Ahab's mark_. USAGE NOTES * When followed by a noun, it is sometimes referred to as a _possessive adjective_, qualifying the following noun. It is, however, the possessive case of the personal pronoun he. TRANSLATIONS SEE ALSO
