What is correct? I appreciate you taking responsibility ... or I appreciate your taking responsibi
is it pronoun you or possesive form "your"
I appreciate you taking responsibility for my concern
It can be either one. The difference is that using the possessive makes 'taking' a gerund and using 'you' makes 'taking' a participle.
A gerund is a verbal that ends in -ing and functions as a noun. A participle is a verbal that is used as an adjective and most often ends in -ing or -ed.
