What is the difference between Мой, моя, and моё?
I don't get the difference, does anybody know? Is it similar to the difference between Это, Эта, Этот, and Эти or is there different rules for these words?
These are the first person singular possessive pronouns (my/mine) for the three genders.
- Мой is the masculine pronoun used with masculine nouns as in "мой нож" (my knife)
- Моя is the feminine pronoun used with feminine nouns as in "моя вилка" (my fork)
- Моё is the neuter pronoun used with neuter nouns as in "моё окно" (my window)
It's important to note that here the gender of the pronoun is determined by the gender of the noun, not by the gender of the speaker
The plural first person singular possessive pronoun is мои and it is the same for all genders.
