I think that you use "ta" when the noun is feminine (i.e. ta souris - your mouse) and "ton" when it is masculine (ton chien - your dog).
I also read that "ton" is always used if the next word starts with a vowel, regardless if feminine/masculine to make the sentence sounds good. Pls correct me if i am wrong.
You apparently read only half of the information:
"ton" is always used if the next word is feminine and starts with a vowel sound to make the sentence sound good.
Merci beaucoup. Every time I'm confused with the exercises, I always checking up your insights on the comment section. You always help us French learners a lot
"ta" is feminine because "crêpe" is feminine. The gender of the owner does not matter.
But, if we come across a noun that begins with a vowel, we either convert the possessive into masculine to aid with translation, or we contract the definite article.
M****, it was the second time in this lesson that the audio didn't sound correct (at all, that is) - and it made me lose the lesson!! :-@ Not fair, and no fun like this! Does anyone encounter a similar problem? What can I do in that case without losing a heart? :-(
happens tome often and sometimes I even take the lesson on another window just to check, and this time it didn't work. Ah well, losing is winning (in that it's educational)
if you are on mobile you can buy a heart rescue for your lessons i always have one in my pocket. ;)
The recovery heart is no more in the store sorry :(, but neither do hearts which is nice.
Reminds me of "krepieren", the first part of which is pronounced like crepe. It means dying in German*, maybe you can krepieren from eating too many crepes?
*or rather, it's one of douzens of words and phrases meaning that, the most accurate of which would be " sterben"
Whenever the word has a close equivalent in the other language, it is better to use it.
round = ronde
circular = circulaire
Ta, ton, ma, mon, sa, son! I reached this part and totally got confused. Why isn't there a simple explanation in the beginning of the skill to clarify things?
You will find this exact information at the beginning of "Possessives 1". Pretty much everything you would want to know about it is there. The author is working feverishly to add "Tips and Notes" to the beginning of more lesson groups. A great resource! Not all parts of the tree have them right now so please be patient.
The audio is horrible. Only on the slow one it is good. It sounded like "tacreperond"
I thought it was going to be 'Your crepe is rounded' and I lost 1 heart... :(
And the Earth is square? Of course not. And neither is crêpe spelt without a circumflex in this area of the UK. It has been subsumed into our language with its circumflex. Please, please allow both spellings.
For some reason the Android program tells me I have made an error if I use the circumflex. It may seem daft but, having used it since before my teens, I feel incredibly loyal to the circumflex.
