EtymologyEdit

From Old Portuguese vosso, from Vulgar Latin *vossus, from Latin voster, vostrum, from earlier vester, from Proto-Italic *westeros.

PronunciationEdit

PronounEdit

vosso m (feminine vossa, plural vossos, feminine plural vossas)

  1. Second-person plural possessive pronoun.
    1. your; yours

Usage notesEdit

In European Portuguese sometimes used as third person plural, to avoid the ambiguity of seu (denotes both third person singular and plural). Otherwise only used in fixed expressions and official forms of address such as Vossa Excelência (president, ministers of state, judges etc.), Vossa Magnificência (dean of a university) or Vossa Senhoria.
