“ I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
This line was taken from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
I'm curious about the phrase of my own used here.
In wiktionary own is used only as an adjective and verb. However, Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines this word as an adjective, verb, and pronoun.
As a pronoun, Merriam-Webster defines this word as:
: one or ones belonging to oneself —used after a possessive and without a following noun
On the other hand, one of my friends told me that this is a determiner.
How is own used in the sentence?
