Usage notes[edit]

  • کا‎ is a possessive particle in Urdu to show relationships with people and things, and in many cases it can be translated as an apostrophe s as possession would be used in English. It is not used to show possession by people of objects, the کےپاس‎ construction is used for that. کا‎ is the postposition of the genitive case in Urdū and Hindī, and, as such, is also frequently used as an adjective termination, e.g. sone-kī ghaṛī, 'a gold watch'; kāṭh-kā ghoṛā, 'a wooden horse'
  • The oblique form کے‎ (ke) forms a large number of compound pospositions such as کےساتھ (with), کےپیچھے (behind), etc.

Inflection[edit]

  • Feminine: کی‎ (kī)
  • Oblique and plural: کے‎ (ke)
