"mis hijos" is plural. Shouldn't it be "my sons' ", plural possesive? May be their sons bought the house together. Plural possesives have rights too!
I agree, I tried to report it but there's no suitable option:
My sons' dog is the dog belonging to two or more sons. My son's dog is the dog belonging to my son. My son's not very intelligent. He can't remember how to use apostrophes. My son's dog is not very intelligent. He doesn't know how to use apostrophes either. My sons' dog is not very intelligent. They've tried to teach him but he keeps forgetting.
ofcourse. It is annoying wwhen they get the grammar wrong. But it is accepted now
This and These have T's. That and Those have O's. ( there's a saying from my college professor when she teaches Spanish)
I used to always mix up esa eso ese esas esos, with the T variants, esta esto...etc. The rule I drilled into my head is... T=THIS/THESE. When there is no T its that/those. Hope that helps.
Could this be used in the sense that the speaker has a child who is married, and she is just using "children" to mean her child and his/her spouse?
me too lol
Why not "my son's house"? Children can hardly own a house, unless their last name is Rockefeller :D
His/her children own a house... interesting... a very rich family. Anyway when I write "child" (hijo) he likes "son"… when I write "son" (hijo), he likes "child".
I'm thinking more a long the lines of divorce, he lost the house but refuses to acknowledge the existence of the ex. Thus it is "the kids'" house. Not that I can relate to this, or anything.
