What's the difference between 'N' and 'a' when you're using 'and'?
И - enumeration of objects, facts or connection parts in sentence:
Яблоки и груши - фрукты.
Яблоки можно есть, и это - правда.
А - opposition (only with parts of sentence):
Яблоко - фрукт, а картофель - нет.
I think the better thing to say here is мы с мамой.
What does that litteraly mean?
It's just the more common translation for "My mother and I" but literally means "we with mom"
Мы с мамой can mean either "Mom and me" or "Mom and us" dependig on context.
It is similar to the malay "kita" which means we or us. "Kita dengan mak." Literally, we with mom.
What is the difference between моя and май (I think) but they both mean 'my'?
Мой is the male possessive as in: Мой папа. (My dad) Моя is the female possessive. I.E. Моя мама. (My mom)
Which is the preferred 'my' for objects? Is it dependent on the individual object?
Yes, each word has its own gender
Can someone please explain when to use "мой" versus "моя" when saying "my"?
Мой is for masculine nouns as in мой папа and моя is gor femenine nouns like моя мама
Male and female articles respectively
"My mom and I" sounds a little bit awkward for me,
Isn't "my mom and me" better?
Depends on if the first person pronoun is nomative (subject) or accusative (object): "My mother and I hoped for sunny weather" vs "We were delighted when the sun shined down on my mother and me".
Actually, while nowadays it is acceptable to say "xyz and I", the original 'correct' way of saying it was always "xyz and me", anything else was seen as a lack of education and refinement.
Crazy how close this sentence sounds like Spanish. "mi mamá y yo"
Моя мама и я = My mother and ME
What difference between "I and my mother" and "my mother and I", please?
It's a matter of politeness in English. "I" or "me" shouldn't go first in a list of people.
When it comes to "and", what is the difference between И & А?
why is mother right and mum wrong?
on the others it counted mum as correct...
