"She eats her bread."
Translation:Elle mange son pain.
The grammatical gender of the singular object.
- son + masculine object
- sa + feminine object
If the object starts with a vowel or a mute H, "son" would be used regardless of the gender.
- son pain (masculine object)
- sa pomme (feminine object)
- son amie (object starts with a vowel)
- son horloge (object starts with a mute H)
"Ses" would be used for all plural objects.
No. "Son" and "sa" depend on the object only. Same for all other possessions. You use "son pain" here because "pain" is masculine.
Georgeoftruth, what if I wanted to say "She is eating HIS Banana" in French, what would I say
If distinguishing "his" from "her" is very important, you would say
- Elle mange sa banane à lui. = She is eating HIS banana.
Otherwise, "elle mange sa banane" is fine for both "her" and "his" banana.
