HIS

1. Belonging or pertaining to him; used as a pronominal adjective or adjective pronoun; as, speak John his papers are ready; formerly used also for its, but this use is now obsolete. "No suitable star did lend his light." (Shak) "Who can impress the forest, bid the wood Unfix his earth-bound root?" (Shak) Also formerly used in connection with a noun simply as a sign of the possessive. "The king his son." Shak. "By young Telemachus his blooming years." Pope. This his is perhaps a corruption of the old possessive ending -is or -es, which, being written as a separate word, was at length confounded with the pronoun his. 2. The possessive of he; as, the book is his. "The sea is his, and he made it." Origin: AS. His of him, his, gen. Masc. & neut. Of h, neut. Hit. See He. Source: Websters Vocabulary
