Etymology[edit]

From earlier joue, from Dutch [Term?] (de) jouwe. The -n- was interfixed in the hiatus on the model of the pronouns myne ‎(mine) and syne ‎(his), whose -n- is etymological, but which accord with the Afrikaans determiners my and sy (like joune with jou).

Pronoun[edit]

joune

  1. yours; thine (that or those of you (singular))
    Hierdie is my hemp en daardie is joune.
    This is my shirt and that one is yours.
