Im coming up to the end of possessive lessons and i still just dont get it. I always get the order wrong. Urghh!
Here is more info about the word order:

How come 'Kucing itu milikmu' doesn't work?
Never mind, I get it. That would mean 'That cat is yours'.
Can it be "Kucing itu kamu?"
That would be 'That cat is yours', rather than 'That is your cat'!
Itu kucing mu is correct, but Itu kucing kamu is wrong. Then to add to the pain they suggest the alternative Itu kucing Anda. mu isn't short for Anda.
Itu kucing Anda = Itu kucing kamu = Itu kucingmu ===> That is your cat.
"mu" is short for "kamu".
I wrote itu kucing kamu and it says wrong
Kucing itu anda. Is it correct? Does it imply the same meaning?
Note that in this phrase 'That' is the thing being explained. So we start with 'itu'. What you said would be 'That cat is yours'.
I wrote "Kucing itu milikmu".
That would be 'That cat belongs to you'!
Would "kucing itu milikmu" be correct as well?
That would mean 'That cat belongs to you'!
Glitch. Always wrong
What's wrong with 'kucing itu kamu'?
'That cat is you'.
Really dumb question, why is Kucingmu itu wrong?
