моя или мой? (Moya or moy?)
моя and мой are so similar I get often confused about their meaning and usage. Is it "моя постель" or "мой постель"? What does each word mean? When should I use either word? Спасибо.
The difference between these words is only in gender: "моя" = my (feminine), "мой" = my (masculine). Also for neuter it will be "моё". Examples:
мой друг - my friend ("друг" is male gender)
моя идея - my idea ("идея" is female gender)
моё море - my sea ("море" is neuter gender)
So, in your case the right answer will be "моя постель" (= my bed), because "постель" is a female gender.
