|Assunto:||Grammar - double genitive|
I always see the "double genitive" being used for people.
e.g A friend/relative/cousin/classmate of mine called me today.
But can it be applied for "things", too?
e.g: PeterÂ´s parents will lend me some cds of theirs?
- The students make many mistakes. Some mistakes of theirs are too elementar.
- The child lost a toy of his.
- My mother hates it when someone breaks a vase of hers.
- The burglars broke into our house and stole some jewels of ours.
