My son has to classify each word in the sentence; The boys gave my brother a bat. He can't figure out what "my" would be classified as.
I don't know how "Shurley English" classifies words, but "my" is a possessive pronoun, used as an adjective modifying "brother."
My - possessive adjective (usually used to describe a noun which is why it comes before a noun, like other adjectives)
warm hot cold
What is is in shirly English?
