pronouns/adjectives.. what's in a name?

"you will use the possessive adjectives son, sa or ses (its/one's here)."  

" possessive pronouns agree in gender and number with the *owned* item (son billet / sa carte / ses parents)."

Not a major issue but referred to by different names in short succession... maybe the term adjective pronouns ?? .. or a sentence to show that they are indeed called by either name.

Also are  'ses' 'leurs' completely interchangeable?

Ses and leurs are NOT interchangeable.

Ses vêtements. -- His (or her) clothes.
Leurs vêtements. -- Their clothes.

Merci beaucoup Jameson, indeed those are adjectives, not pronouns :) It's now been fixed!

Bonne journée !
