I am having a HORRIBLE time with possessions. I cannot get it. I have tried to figure out the methodology to it with NO success. I can seem to determine when to use which version; mia, mio, miei or mie. It is not making sense to me at all. If anyone can give me a crash course or cheats to help make me comprehend, I would be much obliged.
Sorry, this is not a crash course or cheats but here are some explanations from different websites: http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blfare132a.htm http://robinonawire.wordpress.com/2011/11/06/italian-grammar-possessives-mia-mio-mie-miei/ http://www.italianlanguageguide.com/grammar/possessive-adjective.asp http://www.moltobeneitalian.com/how_to_say/12064/difference_between_mio_and_mia
