Question: Which are all formal ways to say the possessive pronouns?
I'd like to know them because I know just "aking", for example: Ito ay ang aking ina.
But I don't know your (singular), his/her, our, your (plural) and their.
This is your mother.
This is his/her mother.
This is our mother.
This is their mother.
Please help me with the following structure above!

aking aso = my dog
iyong aso = your dog (informal+singular)
kanyang aso = his/her dog
aming aso = our dog (exclusive)
ating aso = our dog (inclusive)
inyong aso = your dog (formal or plural you)
kanilang aso = their dog

@GustavHRVCNATD you csn say "this" as "she" or "this" as "he" , it depends if you are pertaining as He (men) or she (woman). General use for introducing a boy or a girl or even a thing,etc. He,she,it -singular.

These are of course the same words that are used to say to me, to you etc - sa akin sa iyo etc.
It is interesting that in Tagalog these possessive (genitive) words are the same as the to/for words (dative).
